Rio DirectCore Flats Pro Fly LineAll Points Fly Shop + Outfitter
RIO’s new flagship saltwater fly line has been designed for anglers hitting tropical flats in search of bonefish, permit and tarpon. The line is built on RIO’s new DirectCore, a proprietary low-memory, low-stretch monofilament core that retains its stiffness in tropical heat, yet lies straight on the water without curl or retraction. The core, which has 30% less stretch than regular tropical saltwater fly lines, ensures solid strip sets and shortened fight times.
Some lines cast far with ease, but leave you flailing when fish show up at your feet. Others do just the opposite. How do you create a line that does everything on the flats better? With Rio's new Flats Pro line, it’s a matter of what Rio calls the four Ts: Taper, technology, testing, and…more testing.
The Flats Pro is available in two floating color combinations: high-vis aqua/orange/sand or the subtle gray/kelp/sand option for spookier fish.
StealthTip: The Flats Pro StealthTip features a full-float head with six feet of clear intermediate at the tip. This nearly invisible front section allows for shorter leaders and easier, more accurate casts, while the increased density provides greater wind penetration. This is an awesome permit line!
- Easy annealing, low-memory core that lays perfectly straight on the water
- Low-stretch “DirectCore” for hard, solid strip sets
