RIO Elite Skagit Pickpocket 

THE ULTIMATE SKAGIT SINKING HEAD FOR ANGLERS NEEDING TO GET FLIES DEEP QUICKLY, SLOWING SWINGS DOWN, AND MAKING SECOND OR THIRD PASSES THROUGH RUNS.

Skagit Style - Sinking Shooting Head

RIO's Elite Skagit Pickpocket heads are the perfect delivery system for casting heavy sink tips and efficiently getting down in the water column when fishing the bottom is of utmost importance. The heads feature RIO's Multi Density Control - a seamless blend of three different densities that removes the hinge point from head to sink tip, ensures the smoothest transition of energy when casting, and provides the very best depth control when fishing variable currents of pools, runs, and pocket water. With the ability to swing under conflicting surface currents and slow your fly down in colder water conditions, maximum control is best achieved with these sinking heads vs a floating head configuration. In addition, mending control is heightened when using sinking heads,
as you can adjust the rear floating section without moving the sinking portions of the line closer to the fly.

Now featuring a S3/S5/S7 “Dredger” configuration in the most popular winter fishing grain weights of 525gr and 600gr, for the ultimate performance in getting the fly to the bottom quickly and keeping it there throughout the entire swing.

RIO Elite Skagit Pickpocket Features:

  • Head lengths are relatively short, making them easier to lift at the end of a swing for the next cast
  • Powerful taper modeled after the Elite Skagit Max Power
  • Turns over the heaviest tips and flies
  • Multi-Density Control maintains a straight line connection while allowing flies to sink below fast and turbulent surface current
