NEW! RIO ELITE GOLD FLY LINE (WF4 - WF8)
The Elite RIO Gold has a taper design that gives incredible loop stability at distance and a front taper that delivers perfect presentation of flies between sizes #2 and #22. With a long head and back taper this line is an excellent all around fly line on rivers and lakes when long casts and complete line control are required. This line is built with RIO's low-stretch ConnectCore Plus, resulting in exceptionally smooth, durable fly lines, with the added benefits of incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and providing enhanced detection of takes, faster hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish. In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, RIO's proprietary coating technology, creating the slickest, most durable fly lines on the market. Lab tests show that lines built with SlickCast have the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.

I'm very pleased with this line. I've used it before and came back to it from trying others.

I love the way this line casts on my Z-Axis 8.6 5wt. I was torn between this and the Technical trout. I liked Gold so much I chose it for my Foundation 7 wt too. Probably a much better “all around” than Technical Trout would have been.

This line has performed well with a variety of techniques for targeting trout, from indicator nymphing to dry flies, it gets the job done.

This line was a pleasure to use, so smooth and almost zero memory. Mine developed cracks sooner than I would like, but I am pretty tough on lines.

Great choice for an all around fly line. Easy to cast accurately. Pleasure to use.

Probably some on the best all around line I’ve fished. Good for doing it all!! Would buy again in a heartbeat.

I decided to splurge and purchase this line. All I can say is I’m glad I splurged. I noticed how great the line casts on my very first cast. The casting is super smooth and casts far without effort. I am a huge fan of this line and highly recommend it.

The best all around line

I like this fly line a lot and use it both of my rods. It can handle very long casts and mends pretty well.
