July 1, 2013 (Idaho Falls, Idaho) – RIO Products, manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, adds a new leader series perfect for dry fly and soft hackle anglers.
RIO’s knotless Suppleflex trout leaders have been specifically designed for the angler that requires the ultimate in presentation and for fishing with small flies. Each leader is made of the softest, most supple nylon available which allows flies to have the very best drag free drift and the most natural presentation possible, while a hand-tied perfection loop on the butt end permits ultra-quick rigging. The dark olive butt section is a great asset for spooky fish and fits in perfectly when fishing with subtle fly line colors, yet the unique chemistry of the leader ensures the front tippet end is completely clear.
Suppleflex Leaders are manufactured in 9ft and 13.5ft lengths, and range in sizes between 3X (8lb) and 7X (2lb). They are available from any RIO dealer for a retail price of $5.95.
