Rio Steelhead/Salmon
Our Price: $74.95
A powerful front taper is ideal for longer casts with weight nymphs and easily turns over bigger flies, indicators, and shot. Ideal for nymphing in big water, especially when using single-hand spey casting techniques. An extra long compound tapered head improves line controls, mending, and stack mending. The ultimate in long distance control this line allows for mending and roll casting up to 70'. A longer front taper delays turnover for better delivery at long range, while an extended rear taper facilitates long-distance mending, pickups, and smooth casting.
RIO's Steelhead/Salmon line has been specifically designed to meet the demands of the modern steelhead and salmon fly fisher. The long head and rear taper allow anglers to mend and control the fly at great distance. A powerful bullet front taper ensures the line easily handles large steelhead and salmon flies, while the rear weight distribution makes this a great line for single handed roll and spey casting. The line is built with a supple coldwater coating that ensures the line remains tangle-free.

The RIO Grand is the best choice of line for the modern, fast action fly rod.
Sharkskin lines feature a microtextured surface which traps air to improve flotation, reduced drag on line pickup, and sheds water on the backcast.  The Magnum Taper is designed for big flies in windy conditions.
The specialty Steelhead Taper has a longer head for long range casting and control, while an extended rear taper facilitates mending, pick-ups, and smoother casting.
