RIO Grand Fly Line
When you're looking for a good all-purpose fly line, there are a lot of options out there. Few, however, have the reputation that RIO Grand Fly Line has... and the reputation is well earned. This line is equally adapt at catching trout as it is at going after carp. It's as good in Winter as it is in the Summer. It's tough, floats like a mother, and mends like a dream. If your angling ambitions are diverse, then RIO wants you using their Grand line.
What RIO offers you with the RIO Grand Fly Line is a product that possesses a slightly heavier than average line with a short snappy head. Thicker than most lines (for it's size), the RIO Grand Fly Line runs about a full size thicker than most of the standard fly lines we've reviewed. Combined with their MaxFloat line coating, which boasts enhanced floating characteristics, this offering from RIO is a killer all around line that floats like crazy. In fact, many anglers will tell you that this may be the best-floating line in existence.
RIO also has gone to great lengths to ensure that the RIO Grand Fly Line remains supple in colder conditions. You won't find this fly line turning to steel should you fish chilled Winter waters. By incorporated what they call MaxCast and AgentX technologies into their line coating, RIO was able to create a line that repels water (thus increasing durability and the line of the product), runs slick against the rod guides, and remains supple in cold weather. Pair these features with cold-weather core material and you have a wonderful year-around choice.
With the RIO Grand Fly Line, rolling and mending was a pleasure on the river. We were also very happy to see that this line wasn't particularly tangle-prone. The line's unique taper, with a majority of it's weight pushed forward, emphasizes the weight-forward qualities that come in very handy when you're nymphing or casting into windy conditions.
This fly line offering by RIO also features DualTone coloration, which makes the line a bit easier to see when you're about to meet your running line. RIO also offers a nice variety of fly line colors, with a lot of colorations brighter than many anglers like. As a finishing touch, RIO has add high-quality back and front welded loops as well. All in all, we highly recommend the RIO Grand Fly Line as perhaps our top all-purpose fly line choice. Lets face it...this line is popular for a reason.
Final Score:97% An all-purpose all star!
