RIO’s Summer Redfish line is designed for anglers targeting redfish and speckled trout in warmer conditions. The line features a mid length front taper that casts typical redfish patterns, and allows for careful presentations so as not to spook wary Reds. The line is front weighted to easily load a rod and to cope with typical saltwater winds, and has a medium-stiff core and a hard, tropical coating will not wilt in warmer conditions.
RIO also makes a Winter Redfish line that’s specifically designed for big Gulf reds.
Dual Tone Technology
This system marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious color change in the line. RIO tests every line model and size on a selection of fly rods to find the best spot where the rod loads, and the color change starts at that point. With this Dual Tone system, it’s so easy to see how much line to strip in, where to pick up a cast, how much line can be held in the air when false casting, and when to make the final cast.
