& Quick-View Specifications

Trout & Coldwater - RIO presents a stellar collection of fly lines for coldwater fly fishing in a variety of habitats and weather conditions.

Lake - RIO has delved deep into the mysteries of lake fishing, developing a brilliant collection of lines to meet your every need.

Streamer - DC tapered sinking fly lines are easier to cast than traditional level sinking lines. RIO's manufacturing process enables smoother
casting and uniform sink rates. In density compensated sinking lines, the sink rate
of the tip equals the sink rate of the midsection, which allows the tip to sink first and put the fly
in the strike zone. For all fishing conditions. Tungsten coldwater coating.

Specialty - Bass, Pike, Steelhead, Carp, and the Coldwater Outbound are an amazing group of specialized fly lines.
