An easy casting traditional style Spey line design with a short head, and interchangeable tip versatility

InTouch Short Head Spey


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.

The line has the following head specifications:

6/7 - 42ft, 470gr
7/8 - 44ft, 520gr
8/9 - 46ft, 580gr
9/10 - 48ft, 650gr
10/11 - 50ft, 730gr
