Rio Gold Fly Line
Rio Gold Fly Line is one of our top selling lines and it is our best selling Rio fly line. The Rio Gold is the ultimate general purpose, floating line for freshwater fly fishing. The unique taper allows a rod to load at close range and a positive front taper delivers perfect presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2.
The long back taper is excellent for mending and for roll and spey casting. The Rio Gold incorporates Rio’s DualTone, with a different color running line and head to easily determine the loading point of the line. The line is made with RIO’s XS, Agent X and Super Floation Technologies and a welded loop on both ends facilitates fast rigging.
The Ultimate Fly Line
XS Technology - With XS Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, and far less apt to attract dirt, and paired with AgentX Technology, it engineers a line that is less dense, casts further and more accurately, floats higher, lasts longer, and offers more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish.
AgentX Technology - AgentX is a result of the combination of a highly buoyant undercoat coupled with a super-smooth outer coating, and it produces the smoothest, most durable, and highest floating fly lines imaginable.
SFT Technology - A customer survey performed by RIO showed that the number one complaint for fly lines was that the tip sank. RIO's chemists deduced that if one coating of AgentX was so buoyant, then two coats must be, well, really buoyant, and the end result is SFT - Super Floatation Technology. Simply put, this is a manufacturing technique that allows us to fuse two layers of buoyant AgentX coating together. This specialized process is applied to the front few feet of the fly line, producing a tip with a specific gravity of around 0.70. Compare that to the standard s. g. of 0.88 on regular fly lines and you get an idea of just how significant this is.
DualTone Load Locating System- DualTone is a system perfected by RIO that marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious color change in the line. The design of every fly line taper, its most likely application and each individual line size is carefully taken into account, and the location of the color change is unique to each fly line. Every line model and size is tested on a selection of fly rods to find the ideal place where the rod loads, and the color change starts at that point. With the DualTone system it is easy to see how much line to strip in, where to pick up a cast, how much line can be held in the air when false casting, and when to make the final cast.
