    RIO GOLD FLY LINE

    RIO Gold Fly Lines have a special taper design that gives incredible loop stability at long distances, a unique profile that allows a rod to load at close range, and a front taper that delivers a perfect presentation any size flies. The RIO Gold is the ultimate, all-around floating fly line for any fishing situation. RIO Gold lines feature RIOs XS Technology for super slick performance, and is built with a supple, coldwater coating that ensures the line remains tangle-free. Other technologies include AgentX, MaxCast, and MaxFloatTip to maximize the performance of this line with any fly rod. Dual tone color provides a visual reference for loading the rod, while welded front and back loops make rigging changes a breeze. This line is the Gold standard for all-purpose freshwater fly lines.

    A Very Good Line for Lots of Rods

    GR (Montana) | February 11th, 2019
    RIO markets this line as a do-it-all line, and I think that's pretty accurate. I've fished it extensively in the 3-weight, 5-weight, and 7-weight configurations. I really like the taper of this line. The head is longer than usual, 45-49 between the 3-weight and 7-weight versions. That means that it can hold a lot of line in the air without your loop collapsing. It's an easy casting line, but I have two issues with it: (1) It's a little heavier than the AFFTA standards, 30% more than the standard line weight. On moderate action rods (which I really prefer), it tends to dampen the rod action just a bit. For that reason I think it's best on medium-fast rods. For a medium rod, I'd fish a true-to-weight line, and for fast rods, I'd fish a line 50% heavy line (like the RIO Perception or Scientific Anglers MPX). I still use it on my medium-fast 7-weight, and I really like it on that rod. (2) Like all the RIO lines I've fished, I find that the line and its coating tends to wear out more quickly than I expect. I've been fishing Scientific Anglers lines for the last three or so years for that reason, and I find that they last longer. It's still a really good line, but I have to replace it more often than I'd like.
