(Idaho Falls, Idaho) – RIO Products is proud to announce the release of an incredibly easy casting fly line for the tarpon angler. Loading modern tarpon rods is a challenge for most fly fishers, and coping with typical saltwater winds usually adds to the problem. The new Tarpon F/I Short fly line excels at both - loading rods deeply and providing a powerful punch that will turnover a fly in most winds. There is no better line for targeting moving fish such as tarpon or permit.
The Tarpon F/I Short is an incredibly easy loading, fast-casting fly line that gives anglers huge advantages when chasing fish on the move. The short head of 30 feet, along with a short rear taper, loads rods instantly and makes often-necessary one-shot casts with ease. A clear 10-foot intermediate tip works incredibly well on windy days, keeps the fly a touch deeper thanks to a sink rate of 1.5-2.0 ips and provides stealth when pursuing wary species.
Each of the three line weights, WF10F/I, WF11F/I and WF12F/I, are 100 feet long and have a 10-foot long clear tip with a sea-grass colored head and sand floating running line color. These lines feature RIO’s tropical AgentX coating, and are made with XS Technology for durability and smoothness when casting. A medium-stiff core ensures the line will not wilt in the heat, and welded loops on both ends makes it easy and fast to rig. The line has a MSRP of $79.95 and is available from RIO dealers.
