November 1, 2010 (Idaho Falls, ID) – RIO Products announces the addition of the Smallmouth Bass line to its Specialty fly line collection. When accurate presentations are important, this new line will help anglers reach the target with ease on every cast.
The line was designed and heavily tested by some of the top smallmouth guides, fly shop staff and anglers in the Mid West who complained that there wasn’t a line on the market that satisfied all the disciplines of smallmouth fishing. The end result is a fly line that exceeds all expectations and is perfect for the demands that smallmouth anglers meet.
The Smallmouth Bass line features a taper design that allows a rod to load at close range. A powerful medium-length front taper is ideal for casting Smallmouth flies while the long back taper allows for a smooth casting loop while keeping the line stable on long casts. A unique handling section behind the head makes it very easy to control the fly at long range when fishing for smallmouth bass in rivers. Not only does this taper arrangement yield incredibly accurate, fast casts at any distance, but the hard coating over a medium-stiff core will not allow the fly line to wilt in summer heat, further helping each cast. RIO’s XS Technology keeps the line slick and dirt free for fast, long casts every time, and with welded loops on both ends of the line, changing leaders and lines when necessary is a breeze. This line also features RIO’s acclaimed DualTone coloring to make it simple to find the perfect loading point of the line. All these features make the Smallmouth Bass line a must have for anglers to have the most successful fishing experience.
The Smallmouth Bass line has a bronze colored head with a beige running line and is available in a WF6F, WF7F and WF8F at authorized RIO dealers at a retail price of $74.95.
