Okuma’s new large arbor design gives faster line retrieval for a single action reel. The Airframe graphite large arbor reels offer incredible value in the traditional exclusive world of large arbor reels.

The new Airframe uses the same one-way roller bearing technology found on the higher end reels. allowing for drag-free retrievals. Costing for no more than a few Wooly Buggers , the Airframe is a great starter reel for a first foray into large arbor fishing , or an extra all-arounder.

Drag Free Retrieval : The Drag Free Retrieval system allows anglers to crank freely with no resistance by utilizing our corrosion resistant stainless steel roller bearing. This is a one-way roller bearing so the spool is only engaged in one direction. As soon as you spin the handle backwards you have instant drag engagement. By reversing this bearing in the spool, you can quickly change the handle retrieve direction.

RIO Grand® Fly Line - for Fast Action Fly Rods

RIO Grand® Fly Line - for Fast Action Fly Rods
Slick Shooter Process by RIO

The RIO Grand® is an all-around line with distinctive state-of-the-art technology to benefit the trout fly fisher.

The line and tip float extremely high due to AgentX Technology in the line and Super Floatation Tip, RIO’s proprietary manufacturing processes which gives the RIO Grand maximum floatation.

The weight forward taper is one half size heavier to load the faster modern fly rod, yet it gives a smooth light delivery of even the smallest dry fly and the rear taper is long enough for roll casting.

The product of RIO’s SlickShooter™ Process, the RIO Grand fly line incorporates a supple coldwater, super slick, self-lubricating, dirt-resistant coating on a nylon multifilament core.

RIO has included a welded loop on the front end of the fly line to facilitate changing leaders. Tests have found excellent turnover and presentation with this loop. When landing fish, it slides through the rod guides more easily than the customary nail knot. Traditionalists can cut this loop off and not compromise the taper.

This is the perfect line for wet or dry fly fishing.

  • Short, bullet-shaped forward taper
  • Medium length back taper
  • Hard self-lubricating coating on a nylon multifilament core impoves turnover performance
  • Won't wilt or sag in warm water fishing conditions
AgentX Technology
AgentX two coat manufacturing process provides a superbly durable and long casting fly line.

RIO NYMPH Fly Line - High Floating - Indicator Tip - NEW

RIO Nymph Fly Line

Use the RIO Nymph line for nymph fishing under all fishing conditions, whether indicator, high stick or dead drift nymphing and terrestrials. Rated number one by Western professional guides for deep nymphing using strike indicators and long drag free drifts. The taper design, with both a long back taper and body for easy roll casting, mending and fly control, enhances casting weighted nymphs, indicators and big air-resistant flies.

RIO’s new high floatation technology creates a super high floating tip that stays up under normal conditions. This high visibility tip is a built-in strike indicator which can be cut off without affecting the casting performance. The Nymph line has welded loops on both ends for easy rigging and fast leader changes.

high visibility tip
This line can be used with many fly fishing techniques, such as:
  • Drifting nymphs and egg patterns with indicators when fishing for steelhead and salmon; casting terrestrials and other big bugs, hoppers, stoneflies or streamers; upstream nymphing with bead heads and other weighted flies, as well as high stick nymphing
  • New Zealand’s South Island, where the angler has to cast into the strong downstream NW Canterbury winds of 30 mph (50 kph) and still get a good turnover
  • NZ’s Tongariro nymph technique, where the angler overhead or roll casts long distances with indicators and flies
  • Czech nymphing where the highly visible tip makes the slightest "stop" of the line very noticeable to the angler
AgentX Technology AgentX two coat manufacturing process provides a superbly durable and long casting fly line.
Super Floatation Technology Super Floatation Technology resulting in a super low density high-floating fly line.

Available in a 4wt (WF-4-F) or 5wt (WF-5-F) for this rod & reel combination.

RIO Coldwater Clouser™ Fly Line for Big Nasties

The Clouser Fly Line by RIO

Casting heavy or wind-resistant flies has always been a challenge, even for good casters. RIO collaborated with Bob Clouser, famed fly tier, guide, instructor and conservationist, best known for inventing the Clouser Minnow, one of the most versatile flies for both fresh and saltwater. The Clouser™ line, with a unique reverse compound taper and a bullet front taper, smoothly transfers energy to prevent the characteristic "kick" with heavily weighted flies. This taper effortlessly turns over heavy flies into the wind for both short and long casts. Whether casting Clouser Minnows for stripers or smallmouth bass, poppers, leaded leeches or heavy nymphs and indicators, the Clouser line is a perfect choice for all anglers.

Available in a 4wt (WF-4-F) or 5wt (WF-5-F) for this rod & reel combination.

Jim Teeny Weight Forward Floating Casting for Recovery "CFR" Fly Line

TEENY Casting for Recovery Fly Line

Every once in awhile a product comes along that is worth buying not only due for its quality and performance, but also because it promotes a good cause. Jim Teeny and company are offering this fly line to complement Temple Fork Outfitters' Casting for Recovery Fly Rods.

A portion of proceeds from the sale of these very special items are donated directly to the Casting for Recovery campaign, which is dedicated to assisting women recovering from breast cancer, through fly fishing.

Casting for Recovery & Hope is a national non-profit, support and educational program for women who have or have had breast cancer. The program offers an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn fly-fishing, “a sport of line”. Just as importantly, CFR offers an opportunity to meet new friends and have fun!

Available in a 5wt (WF-5-F) for this rod & reel combination.

AuquaLux Fly Line Powerflex® Core

A must-have line for the serious lake angler. Castability has always been a problem with clear intermediate sinking lines because there are no lubricants in the coating and the lines drag through the guides. RIO has solved the problem by incorporating proprietary lubricants into the running line coating that make the line slick. The running line is translucent green while the head is completely clear. With an intermediate sinking rate of 1.5 – 2.0 inches per second (3.7 cm/s), the line is perfect for fishing subsurface and shallow shore lines. Ideal when stealth is required for wary, selective fish. Made on a low memory supple monofilament core with a coldwater coating and welded loop on the front end.

Jim Teeny 130 Grain T Series 24ft Sink Tip Fly Line

130 Grain T Series 24ft Sink Tip Fly Line by Jim Teeny

Jim Teeny's original plan was to develop a one piece fly line with a sinking deep water express shooting head mated with a floating running line that would be easy to cast and very strong. That it would be perfectly balanced and color coded so one could easily see when they could roll cast or pick the line up off the water at the optimum time for the easiest and best results. Because he lives on the west coast, the lines were originally designed for fly fishing for salmon and steelhead on our west coast rivers and streams.

Shortly after their introduction, it was apparent that many other fly anglers had their own ideas about other uses for the lines. In the salt for stripers, blue fish, halibut, bill fish, Tarpon and many others, all fell prey to the T - Series lines. Realistically, what the T - Series & Saltwater Series fly lines have done is open up new fisheries both fresh and saltwater. There is hardly a fish that we cannot go after and quite possibly land with a certain amount of luck.

Jim Teeny 150 Grain TS-T Series 24ft Sink Tip Fly Line

150 Grain TS-T Series 24ft Sink Tip Fly Line by Jim Teeny

The New TS-T Flats Taper line has a 10 foot Clear Tip (slow sinking) along with 14 feet of regular intermediate sinking line. Total tip length is 24' of slow sinking head and 76 feet Floating. This line comes one piece from the factory for greater strength and smoothness when casting.

The big advantage this line will have is on fish that are swimming deeper and it's important that your fly be presented at the proper level. After experimenting with the clear tip or clear lines it's been proven time and time again that an all clear or long clear tip is a definite disadvantage for the angler and also for the guide. They are to hard to see and follow for accurate casts and presentation. Teeny designed a similar line back in the early 80's for Tarpon fishing at Homosassa Springs in Florida. Many seasons passed by as he longed for a line such as this for his arsenal.

Trout Knotless Tapered Leaders

Each RIO Powerflex knotless tapered leader is designed for superb abrasion resistance as well as high knot and tensile strength. The long butt design provides smooth turnover while the supple tippet gives the fly lifelike presentation. The graduated tapers have corresponding stepped butt diameters. Tapers are made with thick butts to turn over heavy flies and thinner butts for smaller flies.

RIO knotless leaders have a high tech "best maximum pull" ratio to orient the molecules in a linear chain. This means that RIO's leaders return to their original taper after a fight. The light gray color is the most neutral and integrates visually with any background for perfect camouflage.

All RIO trout tapered leaders have Perfection Loops tied in the butt section to facilitate changing leaders.

  • Supple tippet for a perfect presentation
  • High knot and tensile strength
  • Light gray color is the most neutral and integrates visually with any background for the perfect camouflage
  • RIO knotless leaders have a high tech "best maximum pull" ratio to orient the molecules in a linear chain. This means that RIO's leaders return to their original taper after a fight
  • Perfection Loops tied in the butt section to facilitate changing leaders

RIO Fluorocarbon Leaders

When stealth and accurate presentations are required for wary fish, the RIO Fluoroflex Knotless Tapered Leader is the leader of choice. The leaders are nearly invisible and feature superb knot strength, and abrasion resistance. In the tradition of RIO, the leader tapers are designed and extruded to exacting tolerances. Since Fluorocarbon is denser than nylon, the Fluorflex leaders will sink faster than traditional nylon leaders.

These leaders are a good choice for fishing chironomids and emergers in lakes.
