Elite RIO Perception Fly Fishing Line

The new Elite series RIO Perception fly line is a great all around, versatile trout fly line that casts easily and is made with RIO's new ultra-slick SlickCast coating technology.  Use this RIO fly line with nymphs, dry flies and streamers as it has a very comfortable combination of power and presentation to make it as versatile as possible.  The slightly shorter head design makes this line a great choice as well when fly fishing smaller rivers and lake when long distance control isn't mandatory.

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.
