Elite RIO Grand



RIO's Elite RIO Grand fly line is a full line size heavy to help load fast-action fly rods and also aids in casting larger flies, nymph rigs, or casting in windy conditions.  The Elite RIO Grand also features RIO's ConnectCore Plus, which is a very low-stretch core for ultimate sensitivity and positive hook sets.  RIO's SlickCast is a new very, very slick coating on the fly line that is noticeably slick and casts like a rocket ship.  The SlickCast coating is also very durable and is certainly going to be a winner with anglers.

Here is what RIO has to say about their Elite RIO Grand Fly Line:

The Elite RIO Grand is a full line size heavier than the industry standard, and features more weight distributed towards the front of the line to easily load faster action fly rods, and is an excellent line choice for novice casters who need a little more "feel" when casting.

This line is built with RIO's low-stretch ConnectCore Plus, resulting in exceptionally smooth, durable fly lines, with the added benefits of incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and providing enhanced detection of takes, faster hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish. In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, RIO's proprietary coating technology, creating the slickest, most durable fly lines on the market. Lab tests show that lines built with SlickCast have the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line. The RIO Grand is the best choice of line for the modern, fast action fly rod.
