RIO Products Adds Technology to Two New Shooting Lines
November 1, 2013 (Idaho Falls, Idaho) – RIO Products, industry-leading manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, introduces two new, radically-advanced Technical Shooting Lines for the spey fly fisher.
For the past few weeks a crew from RIO was shacked up on Montana’s Missouri river. The purpose was to meet with dealers, provide product education, and of course catch some fish. Our base of operations was the riverside community of Craig, MT. This otherwise sleepy hamlet is bristling with activity during fishing season, with drift boats outnumbering people and according to the US Census containing the highest fly shop per capita density in the US (I made that up but it’s probably true).
When it comes to stillwater presentation, you soon realize that lakes are different environments than rivers or streams. Other than wind induced current there is little or no flow to help propel and animate your fly. You must move or retrieve the fly to suggest life to stimulate the interest of a passing trout. Successful stillwater presentations depend in large part on your ability to manipulate the fly using your hands.

We are on the Bighorn River in Montana this week with a group of anglers. They have had lots of dry fly fishing so everyone is happy as they share photos of nice fish and stories of PMDs, Olives, and Mahogany duns and spinners.
