The revolutionary RIO Perception floating trout helps anglers connect with more fish than ever before. Built with ultra-low stretch ConnectCore Technology, Perception lines provide groundbreaking levels of sensitivity for intuitively better cast timing, easier line lift and sharp, precise mends. Lack of stretch also means enhanced detection of subtle takes and faster reaction time when setting the hook.

Max Float Tip Tired of floating lines that work like Sink Tips? Fact is, the reduced coating at the narrow, tapered end of most floating lines doesn’t have enough buoyancy to stay above water. RIO’s MaxFloat Tips solves this age-old problem. Our all-new, proprietary tip coating formula floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without any increase in diameter. That puts maximum floatation right where you need it for reduced drag, longer presentations and quieter pickups.
Max Cast MaxCast is a ultra-sophisticated line coating, made with a groundbreaking proprietary formula. It redefines floating line performance. MaxCast lines float higher, shoot farther, last longer and stay cleaner.
AgentX Traditionally, getting a fly line to float has required mixing tiny glass balls (called microspheres) into the lines coating. After years of experimentation RIO have developed a unique element which is six times more buoyant than those used by other fly line manufacturers. This process is called „Fusion Technology”. By simultaneously processing this super-buoyant undercoating with an ultra-smooth outer coating the results are the smoothest, most durable and highest floating fly lines imaginable.
Connect Core RIO’s ConnectCore 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.
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.
