Some of the latest offerings include the Perception floating trout fly line; Indicator II; In Touch CamoLux; InTouch Midge Tip LONG; Pike/Musky; Outbound Short Shooting Head; Skagit Max Spey; Skagit Max Short Spey; Skagit Max VersiTip; Skagit iShort Spey ; GripShooter Shooting line; Switch Chucker; Short Head Spey; Floating 15 and 10 ft Replacement Tips.

InTouch Technology:

All Rio fly lines are now manufactured with Rio’s own InTouch technology. Rio’s new and unique non-stretch ConnectCore produces a fly line with no stretch. Traditional fly lines typically had over 20% stretch in their cores; however, InTouch ConnectCore fly lines have a 4% stretch. Essentially, this provides you with much more sensitivity and the ability to set the hook on a fish much more effectively because due to decreased stretch, a tight connection comes much quicker. In other words, “when the phone rings, you answer it that much quicker.”

Reviews on RIO Fly Line- Lines for generalist and specialist, dependable performers for our clients and Guides

Rio Products offers roughly 90 performance specific fly lines, shooting heads, and sink tips - and this doesn't begin to count their selection of tapered leaders and leader tippet spools. This is a decisive demonstration of Rio's commitment to serving the needs of global fly anglers, from the first-timer to the seasoned expert.

Rio designs and produces their own fly lines, and this also is a significant matter, because there are plenty of companies that order their fly lines from an offshore producer. This means that Rio has full time, in-house professionals that take fly lines from concept to the retailer. Have a question about fly lines? Ask us to tell you about Rio.
