RIO Outbound Short Fly Line

RIO's Outbound Short freshwater specialty fly line covers a wide variety of applications, there is some serious science involved with the construction. A quality fly line is your most important part of the equation in your rod set up, and dictates success. With a short aggressive front taper design it is designed to cast large heavy flies at a long distance with great accuracy. This powerful front section also loads rods quickly and efficiently for effortless casts. Each line features RIO's XS technology for super slick high performance, and is built with a supple, coldwater coating that ensures the line remains tangle free. This awesome line is available in five different densities, you can check out all of the specs here: RIO Outbound Short specs

This line was made for Pyramid Lake in northern Nevada where a fast sinking line is required to get down to the strike zone for extremely large cutthroat trout while stripping flies along the sandy bottom. With minimal false casting a fly angler can punch it out to the desired distance required in a blink of an eye. In a full day of fishing this can eliminate a sore arm from repetitive casting. The I/S6 with a sink rate of 6 inches per second is the "must have" line for the famous desert lake. I've used it several times out there and I'm quite impressed, it made the difference in hook ups, and brutes in the net.

The RIO Outbound Short is also great for chucking streamers in a wide spectrum of water types, from high roily water, to skinny and clear. It's been my secret for such conditions in Northern California's famous trout waters that hold large trout on the prowl in spring and fall. 

I encourage you to check the Outbound Short and demo one at your local fly shop that features RIO Products. You will be so impressed you may want to buy the whole series of them and add them to your specialty line quiver. Technology, function, and quality - That's RIO.
