I use Rio Products because I believe that the line, leader and tippet I use are just as important as the rod I fish with. Many times I've had clients who have landed big fish because they were using Rio Tippet and a Rio Leader. I have the confidence to tell them to put a little more pressure on the fish. Rio Gold Lines are simply the best. The line feature RIO's new Extreme Slickness Technology for an extraordinarily slick, dirt-repelling coating; in addition RIO's AgentX and Super Floatation Technologies ensure the line tip and running line remain floating high. As with all of RIO's premier trout lines a small, neat welded loop in the front end makes it easy to change leaders.They are awesome.
