RIO Premier Streamer Tip

RIO's Premier Streamer Tip fly line is a sink-tip line designed to cast large streamers. The Premier Streamer Tip features a ten foot sinking tip and comes in two sinking densities. This has been one of our favorite lines for casting and stripping heavy flies out of a boat for trout and salmon and is now made with RIO's SlickCast coating!

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 Premier 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 Premier Streamer Tip lines

A series of fly lines with short, 10 ft sinking tips, specifically built for fly fishers that like to fish streamers out of a boat. A short, heavy head loads rods at close range, allowing anglers to make fast, one-shot casts. An aggressive, powerful front taper casts large conehead muddlers and bunny leech rigs with ease, while a welded loop on the front end allows anglers to change rigs quickly. Each line is built with SlickCast—the slickest, most durable coating on the market.

  • Built with RIO's exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast coating
  • Short, powerful head to load at close range
  • Aggressive front taper easily cast large streamers
  • Range of densities for all fishing situations
  • Welded loops for super fast rigging

The Rio Premier Streamer Tip is Available in two sink rates.
