Rio Mainstream
Rio Mainstream
Our Price: $39.99

RIO's Mainstream series of fly lines have been developed to meet the overall needs of the average and novice fly fisher, and are designed to optimize rod performance with slightly heavier and shorter head lengths.

Each line is built with a slick coating on a supple memory-free core, for the best in performance.
Beulah Elixir Switch Scandi Taper
Beulah Elixir Switch Scandi Taper
Our Price: $55.00

The Beulah Elixir V2 is our compact Scandinavian style shooting head. Designed for Spey casting surface, and light sinking poly tips on switch and spey rods.

When fishing tight quarters or open gravel bars Elixir’s are a joy to cast from your first six foot line dump at the top of a run to 80′+ lasers when distance is necessary! Beulah Elixir will handle your dry line, light, and moderate sink tip needs for all spring, summer and early fall spey excursions.

The power of the Elixir line is generated by the concentration of weight in the rear third of the taper (closest to running line). The front two thirds rapidly taper down to a fine front taper, dissipating the initial surge of energy into a tight loop with excellent control. The Elixir is designed with a large enough tip diameter to turn over poly leaders and modest size flies with ease. The Elixir Switch will handle poly leader tips 10′-11′ ( up to 90 grains max). For Spey Elixir use poly leader tips 12-14’, (up to 120 grains).With Scandinavian heads like the Beulah Elixir, a leader formula of 1.5 x rod length, including poly leader and tippet, will make a well balanced system.

  • Available in head only
  • Condensed rear taper
  • Larger tip diameter improves casting and better control of larger flies
  • Improved longer front taper for tighter loops at longer distances
  • Two-color line with color change at load point (full line only)
  • Improved durability on all factory welded loops
  • Laser I.D. on all lines for quick line identification

Rio 24' Sink Tip Fly Line
Rio InTouch 24' Sink Tip Fly Line
Our Price: $89.99

A series of sinking tip lines specifically built for anglers that like a balanced casting rig. A unique, fatter body section eliminates the "kick" usually associated with casting sink tip lines; while the longer front tapers ensure the line does not dump on the forward cast. The supple floating body section allows anglers to easily mend and control the way the fly fishes, making it ideal for river anglers. Each line has a welded loop on the front end for easy rigging.
