DirectCore Jungle Series F / S3

Brown/Pale Orange

RIO’s JUNGLE SERIES of fly lines are designed to withstand the heat of tropical and jungle destinations. Each line is built on RIO’s low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to anneal (stretch) and lies perfectly straight on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions. Each line has a short, quick-loading head that will easily cast and turnover typical large flies, and a range of density options ensures anglers are covered for all species, conditions and waters.

The F/S3 line is a floating line with a 20ft long, type 3 (3-4 ips) slow sinking tip.

There are four different density options  to cover all Jungle conditions:

F - A full floating line
F/I - A floating line with a 30ft intermediate head, the first 10ft of which is clear
F/S3 - A floating line with a 20ft slow sinking (3 ips) tip
F/S6 - A floating line with a 20ft fast sinking (6 ips) tip
