The most popular fly line in Alaska is now available with a Connect Core Plus ultra low stretch core. The Connect Core Plus stretches 30% less than a standard core fly line and lets you feel strikes more quickly, jack the hook set home with more authority and time your casts with even more precision. It doesn’t get any better than this line!
Rio Grand Elite Floating Line
Like the standard Rio Grand, this version is one line size heavier to load rods more fully and deliver large flies under adverse conditions. Connect Core Plus is easily stretchable by hand to allow you to remove memory from the line after it has been on the reel.
The line is 90 feet in length and features welded loops on both ends.
DESIGNED FOR FAST-ACTION fly rods, with low-stretch, ultra-slick performance.
-A full line size heavier to easily load fast rods
-Built with RIO’s exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast
-Low-stretch ConnectCore Plus for the best incasting control, performance and smoothness
-Features RIO’s SureFire tricolored measuring system for increased accuracy and distance control
-Front loaded, short head
The ELITE RIO GRAND is a full line size heavier than the industry standard, and features more
weight distributed towards the front of the line to easily load faster action fly rods. The low stretch
core gives incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and provides enhanced detection of takes, faster hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish. The RIO Grand is the best choice of line for the modern, fast action fly rod.
In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, creating the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
