Rio Short Head Spey Line

by Rio


    The Short Head Spey line from RIO is a very easy casting, traditional style Spey line, which 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 longer head lengths (when compared to Skagit and Scandi heads) allow for less stripping in time at the end of each cast, which means more fishing time, and less loose line to handle and shoot with each cast. 

  • Short head loads quickly and makes it simple to cast in tight quarters 
  • Rear loaded weight distribution loads rods easily and ensures effortless, efficient Spey casts


For more than 20 years now, RIO has delivered on their promise for passion and innovation in fly fishing, with a pure love of the sport and some of the industry’s highest performance fly lines. Originally founded in the mountains of Idaho in 1990, they continue to research, design and refine their products so that they remain your go-to choice of line for many years to come.

With welded loops, extreme slickness and supreme versatility just being a few of the inherent qualities within RIO’s range of Gold, Perception and Scandi Short fly lines, the pay-off of literally thousands of hours spent on the water is allowing you the pleasure of throwing the highest performance fly lines around.
