RIO InTouch Streamer Tip

RIO

 

RIO's InTouch Streamer Tip fly line is a sink-tip line designed to cast large streamers. The InTouch Streamer Tip features a ten foot sinking tip and comes in two sinking densities.

The intermediate tip version is useful for casting streamers in tight to the bank on shallower rivers. The type 6 version sinks much faster and is great for deeper applications on the river. The Rio InTouch Streamer Tip is a perfect boat line as the ten foot length is easy to mend and control.

Here is what RIO has to say about their InTouch Streamer Tip lines

RIO's InTouch Streamer Tip lines are specifically built for anglers that fish a sink-tip line out of a boat but it will work great with out one.  A aggressive, fatter head section allows the angler to load their rod at a close range, along with the ability to turn over the biggest of streamers. The supple floating body section allows anglers to easily mend and control the way the fly fishes, making it ideal for river anglers. Each line has a welded loop on the front end for easy rigging..

  • Ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for maximum performance
  • Easy casting body section eliminates the characteristic “kick”
  • Aggressive front taper easily cast large streamers
  • Density Compensated tip for fly control
  • Smooth casting tapers, that are easy to cast

The Rio InTouch Streamer Tip is Available in two sink rates. 
 •Intermediate (1.5-2-inches per second)
 •Type 6 (6-inches per second).
