Premier RIO Perception



RIO's Premier RIO Perception fly line features a shorter head design than the RIO Gold and is ideal for fishing at short to medium distances on small to mid-sized rivers.  The Premier RIO Perception line features RIO's SlickCast coating technology for a very, very slick line and excellent durability.  It is an ideal line for anglers looking for an all-around trout line with most fishing done where casting and controlling the line at long distances isn't necessary.  

Here is what RIO has to say about their Premier RIO Perception Fly Line:

The RIO PERCEPTION is an easy casting, general purpose fly line that casts nymphs, dry flies, streamers and soft hackles with ease. The short head makes this a particularly good line on smaller rivers and lakes when long distance line control is not necessary. 

This line is built with SlickCast, RIO's proprietary coating technology, which creates 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. In addition, the line features MaxFloat Tip Technology, RIO's proprietary tip coating formula that floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without any increase in diameter.

The RIO Perception is the best all-around fly line on smaller rivers and lakes.

  • Easier casting taper design for great all-around performance
  • Shorter head length for quick loading and ideal on smaller rivers and lakes
  • Built with RIO's exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast
  • Made with a supple, coldwater core and coating
  • Dual tone coloration for visual indicator of casting sweet spot
  • Printed line marking system to quickly identify each line
  • Neat, bulletproof welded loops on the front and back of the fly line
