A complete series of fly lines developed for the striper angler, with ultra-slick performance

Striper Fly Line


RIO’s Striper fly lines are designed for the modern striper angler, and feature quick-loading, easy casting heads. There are three fly line types within this series: 1) a full floating line, 2) a clear intermediate sinking line with luminous running line, and 3) a series of 30 ft long sinking head fly lines with intermediate running lines. Each sinking fly line is density compensated and allows anglers to stay in touch with the fly. Welded loops on both ends of all lines make for fast rigging. In addition the line is built with SlickCast—the slickest, most durable coating on the market.

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



RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.

Front Welded Loop

A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the front of the fly line for fast Spey-specific rigging.

Back Welded Loop

A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the end of the fly line for fast rigging to backing.

Density Compensation

Adds a denser material to the thin tip of a sinking line (or sink tip), which ensures the line sinks straight.
