RIO Elite Smallmouth Bass Fly Line

Part Number: 6-1979

Moss / Chartreuse / Beige


RIO's Elite Smallmouth Bass line has been specifically designed to meet the demands of the smallmouth bass angler. The front taper easily turns over typical Clousers and bass bugs, while a long handling section allows the caster to deliver and control the fly at distance. The line is built with a coating that stays slick in typical summer heat but remains easy to straighten when the temperatures dip in the spring and fall - covering the full range of smallmouth bass fishing conditions. When presentation and accuracy are paramount, the Elite Smallmouth is the ideal line for the job.

  • Powerful front taper to easily cast typical bass flies
  • Long handling section to deliver and control the fly at distance
  • Low stretch DirectCore for solid strip sets
  • Features RIO's SureFire tricolored measuring system for increased accuracy and distance control

RIO’s Smallmouth Bass Fly Line features a unique taper that loads at close range during casts while fly fishing small mouth bass. The front of the taper of the RIO Smallmouth Bass Fly Line is a medium-length and powerful taper that helps cast larger bass flies, loads close and stays accurate, while the long back taper keeps loops stable on long casts. The extended diameter running line anchors the fly line on boat floors better and resists twisting of uncasted line. It also helps the running line float higher - great for wading anglers. Summer heat won’t wilt this line thanks to the hard coating over a medium stiff core. Outstanding fly line for chasing bronzebacks!
