The best choice for all-around flats fly fishing lines - perfect for multiple species, destinations and water types.
NEW RIO SlickCast Coating: The slickest, most durable fly line coating RIO has ever created and one of the best available on any saltwater fly lines.
RIO Elite Flats Pro fly fishing lines are tropical flats fly fishing lines designed and developed to do everything you need when chasing saltwater flats species with a fly rod. Saltwater fly fishing on the flats can require contradictory performance attributes, enough delicacy to drop a fly to spooky bonefish in ankle deep water while having enough power to combat wind and turn over burly crab or tarpon toad fly patterns. Distance needs also vary, sometimes fast and close range opportunities show up and other times boat wary permit require an 85 foot bomb. The RIO Flats Pro fly line was created to solve all of these problems in one high-performance fly line choice. The Flats Pro front taper loads easily at short distances and the mid length head a long rear taper create stability and control at distances.
DirectCore is a low-memory and low-stretch core that creates a solid, direct connection to your fly, lies straighter on the water and still has the stiffness to generate power even in the most tropical heat.
All new SlickCast technology in the RIO Elite Flats Pro saltwater fly line keep it cleaner, slicker and floating higher, longer for maximum flats fly fishing performance. RIO's SureFire three color system also allows you to keep tabs on where you are at distance wise with the fly line more easily. Covering the range of 6-12wt sizes, the RIO Elite Flats Pro fly line has you covered from skinny water bones to triple digit tarpon.
