If casting to wary permit is the sport, RIO’s new DirectCore Permit line is the right tool for the job.
The line features an easy casting taper that loads the rod instantly and at close range and features a long back taper for stable “pickups” at distance, and fast, 2nd shot casts. The front taper and weight distribution have been designed to give soft presentations so as not to spook wary Permit, while maintaining enough power to easily cast weighted crab patterns and cope with typical saltwater wind.
Each line is built on RIO’s low-stretch, low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to straighten and ensures that the fly line never retracts into coils on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions. The DirectCore Permit line is offered in 8 through 10-weight sizes and comes in a sand/orange/aqua blue color scheme. Find them at your nearest RIO dealer for $119.99.
