RIO Products, manufacturer of awarding winning fly lines, leaders, tippets, and accessories has several exciting new products on the market for this winter steelhead season.
The RIO Skagit iFlight is an innovative new skagit style shooting head that features a floating first 8 feet, while the remainder of the line sinks at an intermediate rate. The short aggressive taper is designed to easily cast heavy flies and sink tips. Because the majority of the iFlight head sinks it easily cuts under surface chop in order to achieve a deeper and slower swing. Available from 450-750 grains, the RIO Skagit iFlight is sure become a favorite for winter steelheaders looking to swing deep and slow. Don’t overlook this line for alternative applications like Shad and Striped Bass. Welded loops on both ends ensure easy rigging, and the line weight is printed on the rear end for easy identification.
RIO iMOW tips are a new family of sink tips based on the beloved MOW series. The floating sections have been replaced with intermediate sink sections, which are then joined to their respective sinking sections. The iMOW’s offer anglers precise depth control and work extremely well with the iFlight heads. Welded loops on both ends ensure ease of rigging. Available in T-11 (medium) and T-14 (heavy) densities.
RIO Steelhead/Salmon Tippet is a new nylon tippet that is medium/stiff, making it perfect for steelhead, salmon, and spey casting applications. It offers great strength, abrasion resistance, and turnover for casting large flies. Available from 8-20lb breaking strengths.
