I don’t pretend to be an expert when it comes to fly lines, but I know enough to know that this new Rio line is a fine piece of fishing equipment. Designed for slower rods- like bamboo and classic graphite rods- this line loads at close range which makes it perfect for smaller creeks. A special coating ensures the line remains relaxed and easy to handle. The Rio Lightline features MaxFloat tips and MaxCast technologies for the very best in performance. All I know for sure is that this new fly line casts very well, and feels good in hand.
