RIO DirectCore Flats Pro

RIO

$119.99 

RIO’s DirectCore Flats Pro tropical saltwater flats fly line is their new flagship saltwater fly line. The DirectCore Flats Pro line has been designed for anglers hitting tropical flats in search of bonefish, permit and tarpon. The line is built on RIO’s new DirectCore, a proprietary low-memory, low-stretch monofilament core that retains its stiffness in tropical heat, yet lies straight on the water without curl or retraction. The core, which has 30% less stretch than regular tropical saltwater fly lines, ensures solid strip sets and shortened fight times. 

The new DirectCore isn’t the only technology advancement in the Flats Pro fly line. RIO’s SureFire technology, which has been used in their freshwater fly lines in the past, is added to the Flats Pro line. This triple color, distance-marking design takes the guesswork out of accuracy and distance control, allowing anglers to make higher percentage shots to cruising targets. 

Each Flats Pro line is built with a front taper that loads easily at close range, and with a mid-length head and extended back taper that provides stability for fast, accurate, long-distance casts. 

RIO's DirectCore Flats Prol line won “Best New Fly Line for 2018” at the European trade show “EFTTEX”, and “Best New Saltwater Fly Line for 2018” at the US trade show “IFTD".

Full floating line.  Color is Aqua/Orange/Sand with the Aqua blue color at the leader.
