Exclusive from: The Fly Fishing Shop - Six Pack Head Kit - 6 Shooting Heads in a Kit !!!
The Fly Fishing Shop customer, Fred Evens testing the Rio Skagit Flight. This steelhead weighed about 12-pounds.
Rio enlisted some of the most experienced salmon/steelhead fishers in the country to help design and prove their new Skagit Flight Shooting Head system. Guides such as: Mark Bachmann, Josh Linn, Brian Silvey, & Hawkeye Hawkins were included in the field testing crew. They worked directly with Simon Gawesworth to design the most modern Spey Line system to fit the latest rods and casting techniques. Final design testing was done at our very own Summer Steelhead PhD School on the Deschutes River. What has been produced here is the ultimate tool for fishing large flies on sinking tip lines, plus an extraordinary line for fishing in the wind.

The new Skagit Flight Shooting Head may be the ultimate design in Skagit lines for maximum flight time, effortless casting strokes and the tightest and sweetest of loops. Based on the extraordinarily successful AFS head, the line features a back end that loads rods deeply and easily and a long, subtle front taper that ensures the energy flows smoothly to the tip, generating gorgeous loops and long, long flight times and distance. The front end has a thick tip that packs a big punch and easily lifts out heavy tips and large flies with supreme ease.

The heads vary in length between 24 ft and 31 ft, depending on the size, and the range of weights ensures that even the most fastidious of casters will be able to tune their rod to perfection.
Attach a shooting line to the ultra strong welded loop at the back end and one of RIO’s 15 ft tips or a piece of T-11, T-14 or T-17 (sold separately) to the exceptionally neat, bullet proof front loop.
