Rio Directcore Bonefish Line
The Rio Direct Core Bonefish fly line is uncompromising - in every respect, it floats, lies straight, shoots long, and sets the hook.is it worth a few bucks more? We think so and that's based on our experience with DirectCore lines!
Moving targets. Line wilting heat. Spooky fish. Finicky fish. No worries, you've got the Direct Core Bonefish in the air behind you, poised to deliver.
We've fished the Direct Core Rio fly lines and love them. The promo says that DirectCore lines lay absolutely straight on the water. Well, our personal experience is that the fly line delivers 100% on the promise. This line casts straight where you point it. Beside casting and laying straight, the taper throws a tight loop and will place your tasty bonefish enticer right where you want it. Never sticky in the hottest climate; a true floating floating line, just when you really need your line to float. This line performs with a wide range of bonefish flies of small to modest size and weight. Don't expect this line to cast 6-inch poppers and Clousers into the wind, because this is a bonefish specialty line.
Naturally, this line is looped at both ends.
Total head length is 41 ft
The head is two tone and helps the caster gauge the length of head outside the rod tip while preparing to shoot line. It is not necessary to get the entire head outside the rod tip in order to shoot this line.
This is a full floating fly line of 90 ft to 100 ft, depending on the line weight.
Core strength of these lines is as follows:
WF6 and WF7 - 30 lb
WF8 and WF9 - 40 lb
