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 colors, 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.
RIO Gold: For a WF line, the RIO Gold is the best WF line I have ever fished. It’s a perfect fit for my Biix 6wt, and is an excellent fit for many of today’s modern rods. I’ve never been a big fan of WF lines on trout rods, but this line is really something.
