RIO Premier Technical Trout



RIO's Premier Technical Trout fly line is a dry fly purist's dream line.  The Premier Technical Trout line excels at delivering delicate presentations in spooky fish situations.  The Premier Technical Trout line uses a long front taper to produce a soft, delicate presentation while a longer head and long rear taper helps control the line on longer casts and making mends at a distance. 

The RIO Premier Technical Trout has a slight amount of stretch in the core, compared to the Elite version which has a non-stretch core. The Premier Technical Trout uses RIO's very impressive SlickCast for an extremely slick line that zips through the guides and increases the lines durability and longevity.  In all, The Premier Technical Trout is an excellent fly line for anglers primarily fishing smaller flies where light presentations are the name of the game.

Here is what RIO has to say about their Premier Technical Trout Fly Line:
RIO’s TECHNICAL TROUT line features a long, fine front taper for the lightest of presentations and delicacy and is the ideal choice of line when fishing dry flies, nymphs, soft hackles and emergers to tricky eaters at distance. The line has a long head and back taper to increase loop control when carrying long lengths, and for making precise casts to rising fish, while the weight distribution makes it easy to turn over long leaders for technical feeders at range. 

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.
