Guide Reviews, Video, and Sales on Rio iFlight Skagit Fly Lines - Rio's answer to the challenge of achieving deeper swings in rivers and avoiding surface turbulence in stillwaters.Spey fishers may face situations where a full floating Skagit head paired with sink tips still do not present their fly deeply enough. Same goes for anglers fishing beaches and lakes when wind causes fly drag. Then there are rivers where turbulent surface currents cause too much line drag and interfere with the fly presentation. These iFlight Skagit fly lines - new for 2013 - will offer significant advantages over full floating Skagit Heads.
Most Unique feature: The iFlight Skagit Spey shooting head is clearly distinguished from other Spey heads by the front end of the head (approximately 14 ft) that has an Intermediate sink rate of about 1.5 inches per second. the back 8 ft of this head is a black floating line that enhances mending of the front portion of the Intermediate head.
Application:The iFlight Skagit is a great choice for achieving deeper swings with Spey rods and is a surprisingly effective tool to fish standing waters with beach rods. The Intermediate front of the head gets just under the surface and eliminates wind drift. The Intermediate front of the head is also particularly useful if surface river turbulence interferes with the fly's swing.
