Product Details
RIO’s new iFlight is the latest addition in the arsenal of heads for the skagit fly fisher. The short, powerful head has an 8ft long highly visible floating back end that is easy to track during the swing, and can be mended for total fly control. The unique clear camo intermediate front section is a fantastic asset for when extra depth is needed, in strong current and also on windy days, or when a slower swing is needed.

"The head for low and slow swings"

on 12/2/2015 2:24:17 PM

Review (Tell us Why?: I have been using these heads more and more lately. The best intermediate skagit head out there! If you want to slow your swing and keep that fly in the zone you gotta try one! Also great with iMOW tips. Try a clear intermediate tip/versileader for an ultra stealth approach and a straight smooth swing in clear water.
