RIO Technical Trout



RIO's Technical Trout Line is a delicate presentation fly line that features a long, fine front taper for accurate, precise presentations but has the weight to load fast rods and cast for distance.  RIO's Technical Trout Line also features a longer total head length and rear taper which increases the caster's ability to control more line in the air while making those longer casts.

The unique taper of the RIO Technical Trout makes this line load the rod at close ranges and the long belly and rear taper allow for good line control, roll casting, and allows advanced casters to carry more line in the air. The design of the Technical Trout line makes it a perfect choice for fishing dry flies, small nymphs, soft hackles and emergers to those picky eaters near and far.

The two-tone coloration of the RIO Technical Trout line lets you know where you're at on the line in a glance. Other features include RIO's Maxcast and Agent X technologies for a very slick, dirt-repelling coating and their MaxFloat Tip technology to make the line float as high as possible. As with all of RIO's premium trout lines, a loop is built into the line for easily attaching and removing leaders. A loop is also built into the back of the line to easily attach the line to your backing.
