RIO Shooting Lines
RIO Enters 2014 with the largest selection of shooting lines available.

NEW RIO GripShooter NEW RIO ConnectCore Shooting Line
RIO SlickShooter PowerFlex Core Shooting Line

There are a number of reasons for using shooting heads and shooting lines.  Traditionally shooting lines are used to cut down on friction in the rod guides while performing long casts.  A floating or sinking head is used to load the rod, the cast is made and the head pulls the fine diameter shooting line behind it.  First used for tournament distance casting, this system quickly migrated to salt water, and Pacific salmon fishing.  Since then it has been used for many fly fishing applications.  The newest arena where shooting heads and shooting lines are making an impact is in Spey fishing.  Spey line shooting heads have been popular for a number of years in Scandinavia. 

Many west coast steelhead anglers have also found Scandinavian style shooting heads to be very practical for fishing their rivers.  The original Skagit style lines were shooting heads.  The latest fad is to replace the running lines on Rio's Skagit Spey and WindCutter lines with Rio PowerFlex Core Shooting Line, because it is slicker and more tangle free than the original running line.  Also one reel can be loaded with backing and a shooting line, and many heads can be interchanged on to it.  This system creates less bulk than packing around several extra reel spools.

RIO SlickShooter

A super hard, slick finish oval-shaped nylon shooting line.  Has no memory after being stretched before fishing each day.  Has an extremely low coefficient of friction for long distance casts.

Smaller two hand rods are becoming more and more popular. We think it is because fly lines have become more efficient. It no longer takes large rods to throw large flies.

These lines are built on RIO's ConnectCore for more sensitive feel for detection of those delicate fly nibblers. The new RIO Skagit Max is all about EASY. Works best on rods 13' and under.
