    The InTouch Short Head Spey line from RIO is a very easy casting, traditional style Spey line with a short head that is ideal for Spey casters moving up from easier casting Scandi and Skagit heads. The head length varies between 40 ft and 50 ft, depending on line size, and it is a great choice of traditional Spey line for anglers using shorter rods and when fishing in tight quarters. The line has an integrated running line built in, and is an interchangeable tip style line - meaning the front 15ft floating tip is attached to the line with a loop-to-loop connection, allowing anglers to switch tips according to water conditions and guide recommendations. RIO recommends the 15ft InTouch replacement tips as the best options for this. The line is built with RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the very best in efficiency and load.

    Rio Short Head Spey

    Love this line! I bought it to replace a Scandi head because I often prefer to throw a shorter cast and found it annoying to have the loop-to-loop connection between the Scandi head and the running line constantly going through my line guides. Problem solved! The short head spey casts almost as far as the Scandi head, but there is no awkward transition between the head and the running line for those common 40-50 foot casts. For my rod, I can easily control the load of the rod at any distance. A nice product; surprising it isn't more heavily promoted--I had a hard time finding a place that sold it.

    Easy casting spey line especially when there is limited room for D-loops behind you! Great choice when fishing surface or summer conditions for steelhead.
