I have stocked, sold, and used many Rio fly lines over the years.
The windcutter Spey tips line is perfect for the salmon angler who doesn't want the hassle or expense of multiple spools and lines.
The Rio midge tip, the perfect low water seatrout line for the fishing I do on the River Wear, and the Rio Gold is probably the slickest floating line I have ever used.

Rio have some of the best and most likeable fishing experts who design these lines, notably Brit, Simon Gawesworth.

Mainstream lines have shorter heads to optimize rod performance, supple self-lubricating coatings to improve casting distance and are memory-free in cold water.

A range of excellent value for money fly lines.

The Rio Gold is the ultimate all round, floating line for freshwater fly fishing.The line features RIO's new XS Technology making the line extraordinarily slick and AgentX which makes the tip and running line float high.A welded front loop facilitates easy changing of leaders.


The In Touch Rio Gold introduces Connectcore - whos ultralow stretch technology provides groundbreaking levels of sensitivity for intuitively better cast timing, easier line lift, and sharp precise mends.
Also, more sensitivity towards a subtle take, and faster reaction time when setting the hook.

Perfect for fast action fly rods- a full line size heavier than the industry standard, with more weight distributed toward the front of the line to easily load fast action fly rods.
Excellent for roll casts in a tight spot!
Built with Maxcast technology, it floats like a dream, and allows  for greater distance when required.


As with the In Touch Rio Gold, the Connectcore feature provides a line with more sensitivity and less stretch than the basic Rio Grand line.
This, in addition to all the other attributes of the basic Rio Grand fly line is a superb piece of kit.
