(Idaho Falls, Idaho) – After more than two years of product testing and taper tweaking, RIO Products, manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, is proud to introduce the new UniSpey line - the ultimate all-around, general-purpose spey line.
The UniSpey features a long, precise front taper that produces ultra smooth, efficient loops and incredible turnover of larger flies even in tough winds. The easy-casting, mid-belly length head is an exceptionally good line choice for fishing medium to large sized rivers, and the unique taper design creates long, effortless casts and a presentation gentle enough to not disturb glass-smooth pools. Three different formats of the UniSpey cover all angling preferences for the spey caster; a full floating line with integrated running line; a full floating shooting head; and a VersiTip style shooting head
The fully integrated floating line has a total length of up to 130 ft and is ideal for anglers that do not like knots or loop to loop connections shooting through the rod guides. It has a black loading point near the end of the head to easily show anglers the best place to load the rod.
The floating shooting head has a welded loop on both ends for fast rigging and is designed to provide a longer belly option for anglers that prefer to use shooting heads.
The VersiTip shooting head includes a 20ft. long floating tip allowing anglers to switch between the floating tip and standard 15ft. sinking tips when conditions dictate. The body has been designed to have enough power to turnover heavy T-11 or T-14 tips when needed.
The UniSpey lines are made in a Light Grey color and are available from a 6/7 weight through 10/11, with varying head lengths. The full floating line has an MSRP of $89.95, the floating shooting head of $59.95, and the VersiTip head of $69.95. They are available from any RIO dealer.
