IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO (August 3, 2015) – RIO Products, industry leading manufacturer of fly lines, leaders, tippet and accessories, is thrilled to release a double award-winning fly line with the LightLine. At the recent International Fly Tackle Dealers show, the LightLine won “Best New Freshwater Fly Line for 2016”, and this award was repeated at the annual Australian Fishing Trade Show two weeks later.
RIO’s LightLine has been designed to load slower, more traditional action fly rods such as bamboo, fiberglass and the more classic flexing graphite rods. Built to precisely match the industry line standards, this line will not overload such rods – even at longer range. In addition, the weight distribution and short front taper ensures the line loads at close range, making it ideal for fishing on smaller creeks and streams, while the softer, supple coating ensures the line remains relaxed and easy to handle in the majority of conditions.
Available in both double taper and weight forward, the LightLine comes in 2-weight through 6-weight in brown and ivory. Find the LightLine at any RIO dealer soon for a retail price of $74.95.
