The Rio Gold is one of our favorite lines for trout fishing or salmon fishing with moderately weighted flies. Now featuring Rio’s Slick Cast Coating, the Gold is even better. It is an extremely smooth casting line that brings out the best in medium fast rods. From short dry fly presentations to long casts and mends, the Rio Premier Gold is as smooth as it gets.
Rio Gold Premier Line
THE ULTIMATE, ALL-AROUND floating line for trout with ultra-slick performance.
– Long head for ultimate casting control
– Built with RIO’s exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast
– Front biased weight to load rods at close range
– Taper design to cast flies between #22 and #2
The RIO GOLD has a revolutionary taper design that gives incredible loop stability at distance, a unique profile that allows a rod to load at close range and a front taper that delivers perfect presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2.
The RIO Gold is the ultimate all round, floating line for the trout fly fisher and is built with “MaxFloat Tip” technology, RIO’s proprietary tip coating formula that floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without any increase in diameter.
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.
