Rio Elite Flats Pro Fly Line - Gray/Sand/Kelp


THE VERY BEST FLATS LINE ON THE MARKET— perfect for bones, perms and poons with low-stretch, ultra-slick performance

Conquer the flats with RIO’s Elite Flats Pro tropical saltwater line. This line has a mid length head and long back taper for smooth, effortless loops, and a weight distribution that provides perfect presentations of just about any fly you are likely to use. Each line is built on RIO’s low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to anneal (stretch) and lies perfectly straight on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions. In addition the line is built with SlickCast—the slickest, most durable coating on the market.
  • Designed to easily cast flies from size 2/0 to 8
  • Mid length head & long back taper for complete line control
  • Low stretch “DirectCore” for hard, solid strip sets
  • Built with RIO's exceptionally slick, durable
  • SlickCast coating
  • SureFire tricolored measuring system for increased accuracy and distance control

There are four different density options available that ensures any angler fishing the flats is covered for all conditions and species. The options available are:

F – A full floating line
F/I StealthTip – A full floating line with a 6ft clear intermediate tip - essentially a floating line with a really short, clear tip for the ultimate in stealth
F/I – A floating line with a 15ft clear intermediate tip – perfect for getting the fly down in deeper flats
I – A full intermediate sinking tropical saltwater line

The core strength of this line is as follows:
WF6 - WF7 = 30lb
WF8 - WF9 = 40lb
WF10 - WF12 = 50lb

DirectCore - In hot, humid conditions, DirectCore lines provide the stiffness you need to fire into the wind, with significantly reduced memory. Which means your line lies straighter on the water for a more direct connection to fly and fish. DirectCore is also 25% stronger than other monofilament cores of equal size, and stretches 30% less at breaking point. In short, DirectCore makes you a better angler on the flats, in the mangroves and off the beach.

SlickCast creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market — producing the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line. What does slick get you? For starters, line flies through the guides with higher line speeds for unprecedented and easy distance. The slick coating also allows anglers to fish more effectively as line slides out of the guides with less friction for extended drag-free drifts.

SUREFIRE is Rio's triple color marking system that improves casting accuracy by making it easy to gauge exact distances with a quick glance.

EASY ID RIO’s printed line marking system to allow anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.

FRONT & BACK WELDED LOOP A neat, bullet-proof welded loop on the front and and rear end for fast rigging.
