The Rio Nymphing Line for Numbers of Flies

I was watching a Kelly Galloup video the other night and he really got my attention when he mentioned the nymphing line he was using. In fact I didn’t know that there was fly line specifically design to fish one, two or even three nymphs. Along with the nymphs of course you have the weight to get the flies down. The nymphing line would enable you to cast with much more ease as opposed to your standard weight forward line. The following line by Rio is a good example of a nymphing line.



Rio's Nymph line is ideal for nymph fishing under all conditions; whether indicator, Czech, high stick or dead drift nymphing.

The profile has a very long back taper and body for easy roll casting and mending and the short front taper ensures that casting weighted nymphs, indicators and big air-resistant flies is no problem.

RIO’s Super Floatation Technology creates an ultra high floating tip that stays up under normal conditions and the high visibility tip is a built-in strike indicator. The Nymph line has a welded loop on the front tip for easy rigging and fast leader changes

The line features RIO's amazing AgentX coating that ensures the line remains buoyant and super smooth, while the new Extreme Slickness Technology featured in this line creates a super slick coating that repels water and dirt and adds distance to each cast.

Looks like a good line. I haven't tried it, but might have to give it a go.

I may have to give the line a try myself. Anything to make casting easier I am for, especially when uing an indicator, weight and a couple of nymphs.Thanks for the comment

Howdy Bill. Interesting, I didn't know Rio made a nymph line either. It would sure seem to make nymphing a little easier.

I am loking for an easy cast and an easy layout not to mention distance, and you just prove my point. I have a spare spool and I am going to get the Rio and spool it with it. This is exactly why I put this post out there, to get some of feedback. Thanks for the comment.

I use Rio for dries on one of my reels but like you didn't know there was a nymphing version. I am going to get it a try. Thanks for the comment

I don't do much nymphing, but Rio lines are quality.

I really enjoy your blog, and I appreciate all your comments on my post. This is why I blog to communicate with other fisherman, who love the sport as much as I do.

I am still in the learning process with nymphing, and anything that will improve my odds I am for. Thanks for the comment

Rio makes a great product. I'm a great lakes steelheader and always used Rio gold but recently switched to Rio indicator and love it. I run 2 fly rigs with 3 shot and turn these over with ease.
