Rio T1 Lines

The T1 series is targeted to the overall needs of the UK trout angler. These lines are designed to optimize rod performance with the faster mid-tip action rods that are so often used: The taper design helps to load these rods from the first false cast on a short line. The medium head length is manageable in all but the tightest of situations and allows the potential for long range casts. Capable of turning over the less friendly combinations of flies we sometimes require, yet adding a tapered leader will give the delicacy needed to present dries and small nymphs to more wary fish.
The slick self-lubricating coating on T1 Floating Lines and neat Rio welded loop are just two of the features not common on lines at this price. T1 lines undergo the same rigorous production processes and quality control standards as all RIO products and are all made in RIO’s factory in Idaho.

Rio Gold

In four years time Rio Gold will have a new meaning, at the moment it refers to the ultimate all-round fly line from Rio, in four years it will refer to ultimate athletes.

With a revolutionary design that allows for incredible loop stability at distance, a unique taper that allows a rod to load at close range and a positive front taper that delivers perfect presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2 , the RIO Gold is the ultimate all-around, floating line for freshwater fly fishing. The long back taper is excellent for mending and for roll and spey casting and the running line and head are different colours, making it easy to find the line’s perfect loading point. The line features RIO’s XS Technology for an extraordinarily slick, dirt-repelling coating, as well as RIO’s AgentX and Super Floatation Technology that ensure the tip and the running line will float high. A welded loop on both ends of the fly line facilitates changing leaders and allows for fast rigging and line changes.
Available in Moss/Gold 3# – 8# and Melon/Grey 5# – 8#.
