RIO’S DIRECTCORE TARPON lines feature short, powerful front tapers to easily cast large flies, and a long back taper for stable casts at range, quick pickups, and 2nd shot casts to moving fish. The DirectCore Tarpon line has a mid-length head of around 40ft and is an ideal all-round Tarpon line. 


Each line is built on RIO’s low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to stretch and lies perfectly straight on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions.
