RIO Connect Core Technology

Connect Core Plus
RIO’s ConnectCore Plus full-sinking lines open up new worlds of perception and sensitivity with no-stretch performance. Soft, subtle takes become positive grabs, and without stretch to dull reaction times, hook sets are instant and sure. ConnectCore - The secret weapon for stillwater success. 

RIO Welded Loops Technology 
Welded Loops
RIO pioneered / originated the innovative welded loop technique. Welded loop fly line tips float better and enable a rapid change of leader. Almost all RIO fly lines are supplied with these small welded loops, please see the appropriate line diagram for information.

RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.

SlickCast creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market – producing the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line.


The ultimate Scandi Shooting Head, presenting smaller and traditional style patterns with fin touch, distance and ease.

  • Higher tip diameter for consistent turnover of long tapered leaders or heavier VersiLeaders
  • Unique stepped taper concentrates weight in the D-loop for easier rod load and powerful casts
  • Redesigned front taper for delicate turnover and graceful presentations
  • Ultra-low stretch ConnectCore Plus for maximum performance
  • Built with RIO’s exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast coating

The Scandi Launch is an all new series of high performance shooting heads designed to maximize the fun of fishing small flies on floating lines. Each size has been meticulously tuned for two criteria. First, a unique series of steps in the taper concentrates weight at the back of the head, putting more weight in the D loop and making it easy to load the rod. Second, the front taper and tip diameters of each head have been selected to turn over delicately for the most graceful presentations. Whether fishing a tapered nylon leader or a slightly heavier VersiLeader, the Scandi Launch delivers flies quietly and efficiently. Fishing “fine and far off” has been the aspiration of two-handed anglers for decades and the Scandi Launch makes it more fun than ever. A shooting line is required to make this head fishable.

And the great news is, we will continue to research, design and refine our products to ensure they are your preferred line of choice for years to come.Product development like that won't happen all by itself – that level of commitment is going to require thousands more hours on the water – but somebody's got to do it, and that somebody is RIO. No matter what line family, price level or quality RIO fly line you choose, you can fish happy in the knowledge that every single fly line is made in our Idaho Falls facility – close to the banks of our premium testing grounds, the Henry’s Fork and the South Fork of the Snake in Idaho. Fly line manufacturing is a complicated business requiring incredibly sophisticated machinery.RIO spends thousands of hours on the water researching, designing & refining products.
