RIO Products Makes It Easy For Anglers To Choose The Perfect Fly Line


From RIO Products:

RIO Products, manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, announces the release of a series of short, educational films designed to help consumers choose the best fly lines for their individual needs.

RIO Products is a company committed to educating consumers about fly lines and making it easier for the average fly fisher to choose the right fly line. Continuing this educational process, RIO has launched three new “Choosing a line” films that unravel the mysteries of fly line tapers and help anglers pick the perfect fly line.

For many years, fly fishers only had two options for a trout line – double taper or weight forward. In today’s ever-evolving world this is not the case and anglers are faced with numerous trout line choices, each designed for a specific application. In “Choosing a Trout Line”, RIO’s Simon Gawesworth describes the specifics of each of the principle six trout lines offered by RIO (RIO Perception, RIO Gold, RIO Grand, Trout LT, Indicator II and Outbound Short) and explains how to make the perfect fly line choice.

The most confusing of all fly line categories is the category of Spey lines, so RIO’s “Choosing a Spey Line” video is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to buy a Spey line. Initially the video focuses on helping anglers decide which type of line to choose (Skagit, Scandi or Traditional Spey) before explaining how to choose the perfect line within each type. From the new Skagit Max, Max Short and iShort shooting heads through the RIO Scandi and Scandi VersiTip heads to the traditional Spey lines of the Short Head Spey, UniSpey and PowerSpey lines, this film explains the merits and uses of every Spey line RIO offers.

Modern Spey anglers tend to prefer shooting heads to fully integrated fly lines, which has resulted in the rapid growth of the shooting line category. RIO’s third new film, “Choosing a Spey Shooting Line”, introduces viewers to RIO’s two newest Spey shooting lines (ConnectCore and GripShooter) and puts them alongside established shooting lines Powerflex and SlickShooter; explaining when best to use each one. More importantly, the film explains how to correctly match the shooting head size to shooting line diameter to ensure maximum distance and performance.

Each of these three new films, along with all of RIO’s other educational and informative films can be viewed at
