Rio Billfish Shooting Head Fly Line: Tropical Series fly lines
Billfish Shooting Head Fly Lines: RIO Saltwater Big Game Fly Lines: Reviews and sales from the Caddis Fly Shop
Head Length: Rio Billfish Shooting head fly lines are 30' long.
PLEASE NOTE line taper chart inset above.
Core line strength: over 70 lbs break strength, suitable for the largest saltwater species we pursue with a fly rod.
Sink Rates offered: New for 2015 the Billfish Shooting Head is grey/orange.
No Loops: Rio made a decision to leave the loop type and creation to the individual Big Game angler with the Leviathan Series of fly lines. Some choose Albright knots, but we prefer to double over the line and use two nail knots and whip the loop securely. The choice is yours, and this stage is critical when seeking the largest saltwater game fish. New for 2014, the Rio Leviathan Billfish Shooting Head has a welded loop for easy rigging.
Billfish Shooting heads have the Rio warm water, high temperature water (and scorching sun) fly line formulations of hard coats that resist wilting in the sun.
