RIO’s new Skagit Trout Max Heads are designed for two-handed fishing for trout.
- RIO's Skagit Trout Max Head's mass distribution allows for easy, sustained-anchor casts with sink tips and weighted flies.
- Coupled with floating tips and long, tapered leaders, the heads delicately present nymphs and soft hackles.
- The short length makes them fantastic tools for casting in the tightest of quarters and also well-suited for a wide range of fly presentation techniques, including stripping, jigging and the traditional downstream swing.
- Though primarily designed for light two-handed and Switch rods, these heads also perform exceptionally well on single-handed rods. Just step up 3 sizes for the correct loading - in other words, use the #2 Skagit Trout Max on a 5wt single handed rod, the #3 Skagit Trout Max on a 6wt single handed rod, and so on. These heads are built on RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the maximum in bite detection, hook set and fish playing efficiency.
