Exceptionally powerful, easy casting line built for casting big flies, and for maximum distance, with ultra-slick performance

OutBound Short Fly Line


RIO’s OutBound Short series of lines are designed to cast large and heavy flies and get huge distances easily. Built with a short, aggressive front taper that easily carries large, weighted streamers, and a powerful head design that loads rods deeply and quickly for fast, easy distance. A full range of densities make this a very versatile line series for both the freshwater and saltwater angler. Best of all, the line is built with SlickCast—the slickest, most durable coating on the market.

There are 6 different density lines to cover every fishing situation:

  • A Full Floating line (F), for top water action
  • A Floating Line with 15ft of "hover" Sinking line, then 15ft of clear Intermediate Sinking line at the front (F/H/I), for fishing 2-3 ft deep
  • A Full Intermediate Sinking line with a 15ft clear tip (I), for fishing 3-5ft deep
  • An Intermediate sinking line with 17ft of Medium Sinking line, then 13ft of Fast Sinking Line at the front (I/S3/S5), for fishing 4-8ft deep
  • An Intermediate sinking line with 17ft of Fast Sinking line, then 13ft of Extra Fast Sinking Line at the front (I/S5/S7), for fishing 6-12ft deep
  • A Full, Extra-Fast Sinking "Dredger" line (S7), for maximum depth

SlickCast creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market – producing the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line.
