Details

New for 2013. Powerful, easy casting intermediate head designed to cast sink tips and large flies with the utmost ease.

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.

Easy casting, deep loading design for effortless casts
Powerful front end casts fast sinking tips and large flies
Slow sinking intermediate tip for deeper and slower presentations
ID printed rear loop for fast head recognition

For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
275gr to 450gr – .024" Powerflex shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter
450gr to 550gr – .030" Powerflex shooting line, or 35lb SlickShooter
550gr to 650gr – .035" Powerflex shooting line, or 44lb SlickShooter
650gr and bigger – .040" Powerflex shooting line, or 50lb SlickShooter

Reviews for this product
A considered view of the Rio I Flight
I was keen to try an intermediate Skagit line to complement both my 15 and 17 foot salmon rods. Both are rated 10/11 and are distinctly different in action. I was not disappointed and even with a 10 foot length of T18 tip connected to this line, both rods had no difficulty in both retrieve and delivery of the fly from the depths! To be honest, I rate Rio lines in every respect. The build quality and attention to detail is all that I expect from quality lines. They perform exceptionally well in all conditions including snow storms on Tay in January. A great line and one that will be my go to line until later in the season. Casting with the I Flight is a delight. It goes exactly where I wish and coupled with appropriate running line, it is a dream to have on my reel. I particularly like the colour changes in each of the floating/ sinking sections. The loading point was about 8 inches off the top ring. One piece of advice I would offer, is to lube the running line prior to a days' fishing. Review by Allister (Created 09/02/2018)
