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.
