Elite RIO Gold Fly Fishing Line

The new Elite series RIO Gold fly line is the ultimate all-around fly line with a design that provides incredible loop stability at a distance and perfect presentation of any trout fly size.  Fishable as both a river fly line and lake fly line, the RIO Gold taper is one of our best selling tapers ever - and now they're even better with the ultra-slick and ultra-durable SlickCast coating technology.  An easy choice in fly lines when looking for versatility and performance in pretty much any aspect of trout fly fishing.

RIO calls their new SlickCast the slickest, most durable coating on the fly line market - the least amount of friction ever measure on a fly line.  Tested against other top tier fly line technologies, RIO SlickCast produced some seriously impressive results.  The incredible amount of slickness found in these RIO fly lines allows for greater distance on casts and feeding slack on drifts - this means more effective and efficient trout fly fishing. 

The more durable a fly line coating is the longer it will last before cracking and RIO SlickCast fly lines have tested against other technologies as lasting 33% longer before cracking - more fishing time and more time in between spending money on new fly lines.

As fly lines get fished, they constantly rub against and through rod guides which will gradually wear the surface coating off - new RIO SlickCast coated fly lines tested well past the next technology in tested cycles before abrasion occurred.  140% more in fact - seriously tough fly lines.


Low-stretch core material that radically increases line durability, smoothness of the coating and performance overall.  RIO ConnectCore Plus cores stretch 30% less than standard cores which provides enhanced sensitivity, less wasted energy, faster hook sets and a significantly longer fly line lifespan.


Most floating fly lines have a reduced coating at the narrow, tapered end of the lines which results in reduced buoyancy and sinking tips.  RIO MaxFloat Tip technology allows for maximum floatation with no increase in diameter.  Reduced drag, longer presentation and quieter pickups.
