The Rio Gold™ is one of the best all-around floating lines for freshwater fly-fishing. A revolutionary design ensures incredible loop stability during the cast. The unique taper is front-loaded to efficiently load the rod, even at close ranges. A positive front taper allows perfect presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2. The tip floats extremely high due to Rio’s proprietary SFT® process. The entire line is made with Rio’s AgentX® undercoat to ensure high flotation and super-smooth performance. New XS Technology® produces an extraordinarily slick line for optimal casting. Welded loop on the front facilitates easy leader attachment.
