Retrieve Information
LEFT HAND RETRIEVE

If you cast with your right hand and retrieve with your left hand then you want Left Hand Retrieve.

RIGHT HAND RETRIEVE

If you cast with your left hand and retrieve with your right hand then you want Right Hand Retrieve.

Note: Some prefer to use the same hand for casting and retrieving by setting the hook before switching the rod to the opposite hand. This is perfectly acceptable. The important thing is that you retrieve with the hand with which you are most comfortable (fastest retrieve).



Backing Material Information

For a small fee we will put 20# test Dacron backing material by 3M-Scientific Anglers on to your reel.

Be sure to select your retrieve (see above).

Backing Material

Standard Backing is built with advanced 3M technology that allows 3M to create small diameter backing without losing the inherent strength of the backing material.

Features:
  • Exceptionally thin material for more reel capacity
  • Low coefficient of friction minimizes wear on guides
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Colorfast
  • Extremely high visibility


Optional Fly Lines for this Reel

If you select to add backing and a fly line, we'll spool up your reel to capacity and tie on a fly line of your choice.

Be sure to select which retrieve you prefer.

If you select to add a fly line only, we'll include the fly line off the reel.

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.

Available in a 5wt (WF-5-F), 6wt (WF-6-F), or 7wt (WF-7-F) on this reel.

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.

Available in a 5wt (WF-5-F) or 6wt (WF-6-F) on this reel.

Coldwater Clouser™ Fly Line for Big Nasties

Slick Shooter Process by RIO
Coldwater 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 5wt (WF-5-F), 6wt (WF-6-F), or 7wt (WF-7-F) on this reel.

Cast 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 5wt (WF-5-F) on this reel.

Bonefish Fly Line

Bonefish Fly Line by RIO

The demands of bonefishing require a balance of long and short casts with precise presentation. RIO’s Bonefish fly line does just that, starting with a medium-length front taper to improve turnover without sacrificing presentation, and a slightly longer back taper to smooth out the casting loop. The tropical AgentX coating combined with a Powerflex single-strand monofilament core results in longer casts and a line that will not wilt in most extreme tropical conditions. With AgentX, the line floats higher than competitors’ lines, is easier to pick up off the water, and unlike competing products the running line will not sink and tangle while wading. Includes a welded loop at both ends for easy rigging.

Available in a 6wt (WF-6-F) or 7wt (WF-7-F) on this reel.

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.

Available in a 5wt (WF-5-I) or 6wt (WF-6-I) on this reel.

Saltwater Tropical Floating/Intermediate Fly Line w/ Clear Aqualux® Sink Tip by RIO

Slick Shooter Process by RIO The Saltwater Tropical F/I line is built on a medium stiff Powerflex core that is extremeley easy to anneal (stretch). The line features a floating tropical coating with a 9.5 ft clear intermediate tip for deeper flats. The Clouser taper is perfect for casting into a fifteen-knot breeze. Sounds unbelievable, but this line will turn over a 12 ft - 15 ft leader in a strong wind. A 9 ft leader attached to the clear AquaLux tip gives you an effective 18 foot leader, which is stealthy enough for any wary fish. Your guide can still follow the fly at this length, while a totally clear line is really tough to track.

Florida bonefish are normally found in deeper waters of two to four feet. With the 9.5 ft clear sinking AquaLux® intermediate tip, you will get your fly down to the bonefish.

Available in a 7wt (WF-7-F/I) on this reel.

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.

TS Series 30ft Sink Tip Fly Line by Jim Teeny

The TS Series represents a longer version of the original Teeny T Series fly lines. The sinking section is 30 feet long with a 70 foot running line section, totaling 100 feet. The title of the line is Saltwater Series, but it works equally well in freshwater when distance is important.

Teeny Designed this line for anglers who prefer to cast long distances of up to 100 feet. Many have found this line to be very useful on the big wide rivers on the west coast where casting distance is important. If you wish to fish close in, say 20 to 30 feet, you can easily do this. Simply roll cast some of the sinking line. Short leaders seem to work best with these lines. Jim usually runs about 4 feet of leader off the fly line when fishing for Steelhead or Salmon. The best way to cast this type of line is to get the color change to your rod tip and roll cast your line to the surface and then immediately make a single false cast and then shoot it where you want it to go. A great size for Billfish is the TS-550 which is perfect for quick casting and excellent balance to turn over large flies. This line works equally well in both fresh and salt water.

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.

Density Compensated (DC) 24 Ft Tapered Sinking Tip Fly Line

200 Grain Density Compensated (DC) 24 Ft Tapered Sinking Tip Fly Line

The best sinking tip fly line in the world whether you are streamer fishing for trout or using marabous for steelhead and salmon. The DC 24 ft sink tip line has been the line of choice for steelhead anglers for many years.

No more level sinking tips - although the tip has a smaller diameter than the thicker sinking belly, the tip will sink first, presenting the fly at the same level as the fish for more strikes.

The short, thick body section behind the sinking tip keeps the heavy density tip from hinging and is much easier to cast than competitors’ lines. The balanced length of thick floating body ensures a no hinge effect during the casting stroke.

The durable running line ensures that these lines will outlast those of any competitor.

Density Compensated (DC) Type 6 Full Sinking Fly Line Powerflex® Core

The DC series of sinking lines have a denser tip than the body, ensuring the line sinks straight, not in the curve of regular sinking lines. This results in better bite detection and more hook ups. These lines are made on a supple core for memory free performance and have a super smooth, tungsten impregnated coating that makes distance casting easy. An essential range of lines for the serious lake angler.

Available in a 7wt (WF-7-S6) on this reel.

Deep 7™ Type 7 Full Sinking Fly Line

This full sinking fly line was developed for the expert competition reservoir "buzzer" or chironomid anglers in the United Kingdom who need to get their flies down deep and fast. The Deep 7, built on an ultra thin single-strand monofilament core, is one of the fastest and most durable sinking lines in the world. It gets flies down deep and generates high line speed. North American anglers find it useful fishing in waters such as the Kamloops area of British Columbia or the desert lakes of the U.S. The Deep 7 is created for a 7 weight fly rod, but can be used on 5 – 8 weight.

Coldwater VersiTip Interchangeable Tip Fly Line by RIO

Evolved from the WindCutter® fly line design, the VersiTip has the RIO non-hinging welded loop design and four interchangeable sinking tips. The smooth, slim welded loops will not foul in the guides.

Attach either the Clouser taper floating tip or one of the sinking tips directly to the belly.

It is the fly line favored by Alaskan guides for all species and by steelhead fly fishers. With the VersiTip line, the fly fisher is always prepared to meet all fishing conditions. Made with a memory-free coldwater coating and core.

  • Floating Tip
  • 15 ft AquaLux Intermediate Sinking Tip (1.5 ips 3.8 cm/s)
