The ultimate, all-round floating line for trout.
The RIO Gold has a revolutionary taper design that gives incredible loop stability at distance, a unique profile that allows a rod to load at close range and a front taper that delivers perfect presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2. The RIO Gold is the ultimate all round, floating line for the trout fly fisher. The RIO Gold Tournament version of this line is designed for long distance casting events, and features an extra-long head for maximum distance.
Front biased weight to load rods at close range
• Taper design to cast flies between #22 and #2
• Long head for ultimate casting control
RIO’s MaxFloat Tips solves this age-old problem. Our all-new, proprietary tip coating formula floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without any increase in diameter. That puts maximum floatation right where you need it for reduced drag, longer presentations and quieter pickups.
Our new, ultra-sophisticated line coating redefines floating line performance. Made with a groundbreaking proprietary formula, MaxCast lines float higher, shoot farther, last longer and stay cleaner. The secret? The coating’s advanced hydrophobic chemistry, which actively pushes water away from the line, resulting in radically improved floatation and reduced dirt adhesion.
Traditional, single-layer fly lines have to compromise between function and the need for durability and slickness. AgentX Technology makes the old compromise obsolete by bonding two separate coating layers onto one line.
A default go-to trout line, used on my 3, 4, and 5wts. The longer taper makes for easy mending, rolling and SH spey, floats high, and casts long and soft. Not much compromise in this all-around trout line.
