RIO Elite Switch Indicator Line


RIO Elite Switch Indicator Line has a super long head and an easy to identify load zone for really long casts and drifts. This is a killer line for use with switch rods size 5-8wt. Head lengths range from 58-64ft and grain weights match 5wt switch rod charts for the most part.

Elite Switch Indicator Lines will turnover huge nymph rigs at distance. This is not a line for short stuff, it will work but it excels when you need to reach out and touch someone on the other bank. Overhead or switch style casting will sling the indicator nymph rig where you need it to go and SlickCast coating, ConnectCore core and MaxFloat tip will help you keep the nymph rig in the bucket.

RIO Elite Switch Indicator Lines come in the following line/grain weights #5/270gr #6/315gr #7/360gr #8/410gr


RIO Lines with SlickCast are the most durable and slickest coating on the market. They produce the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line. SlickCast helps the line fly through the guides creating higher line speeds and easy distance. Extend drag free drifts with easy feeding of SlickCast lines for super long drifts.

Max Float Tip

RIO’s MaxFloat Tip technology floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without an increase in line diameter. That puts maximum floatation right where you need it for reduced drag, longer presentations and quieter pickups.

ConnectCore Plus

RIO ConnectCore Plus stretches 30% less than standard cores and gives anglers all the benefits of a low stretch core – enhanced sensitivity, less wasted energy and faster hook sets. Connectcore’s less stretch property also leads to a much longer fly line lifespan and less coiling. The highest performing, longest lasting freshwater lines in the world are built around Connectcore Plus.

Premium RIO Fly lines like the Elite and Premier Series possess some outstanding features that make them the finest fly lines available. 1) Surefire color marking system that improves casting accuracy by making it easy to gauge exact distances with a quick glance. 2) Front and back welded loops. 3) Easy ID is RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line. 4) DualTone is a system perfected by RIO that marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious color change in the line at the sweet spot for casting.
