NEW! RIO PREMIER GOLD FLY LINE (WF3-WF9)
RIO Premier Gold Fly Line is the new and improved version of one of the best fly lines ever made. RIO Gold has been the go-to trout line around the world for many years, and for a multitude of fly fishers. The line has a long head and back taper that give casters total line control and stability at range - whether casting or mending. The unique profile is designed to load a fly rod at close range, and has a front taper that delivers perfect presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2.
RIO enhanced the performance of this wonderful trout line by building it with SlickCast - RIO's proprietary coating technology. SlickCast creates 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. The RIO Gold is the ultimate all round, floating line for the trout fly fisher.
- Dualtone: Marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious color change in the line at the sweet spot.
- Easy ID: RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.
- Front welded bulletproof loop at the front of the fly line for fast rigging to a leader.
- Back welded loop welded at the end of the fly line for fast rigging to backing.

Great all round freshwater line. I use it for nymphing, dries, and streamers for trout and bass.

I put this line on my 5wt setup. It’s been fantastic. Casts well. No issues with it at all after 3 years after use.

Bought this line as a replacement for my Orvis Hydros DT on my Echo Trout 4 wt. Much nicer fit. The surface is very slick indeed and the line shoots nicely.

best line I've owned and love the orange color option

Great line. Only issue is the welded loop. broke after one season. Otherwise the taper is great for medium fast to fast action rods and can handle anything from indicators to dries. does well in most temperatures as well.

I love the orange color in the 6wt. Helps me to see where my line is and controlling my mends when I am working a run. Its a perfect affordable fly line. Solid all the way through. I have no problem turning big indicator rigs with this line.

Last fall I decided to upgrade my 3wt and purchased an Echo Carbon XL 376 from RFR. Have to say I was a little disappointed in it when I first received it. It just didn't seem to pair well with my old SA GPX line. So...after reading a few reviews, I decided to purchase a Rio Gold 3wt for the rod instead. The difference has been night and day. The rod loads with ease and is a pleasure to cast. Gold will be on my short list for all future line purchases. Works great.

I purchased this line for my 4wt this past season and loved it so much I had to buy it in a 5wt for my step-son. This will be my go to line for years to come.

I’ve always fished less expensive lines and always had trouble with the quality. No issues here, don’t know if there’s a better trout line out there.
