The ultimate line for dry flies, emergers and subtle presentations.
The RIO TROUT LT has been upgraded with new technologies: MaxCast and MaxFloat Tip. This enables the line to shoot well, float high on the water and have a longer life.
The RIO TROUT LT is an elite presentation line for all traditional fly fishing techniques. Whether delivering dry flies, small nymphs, midges or emerger patterns, the long front taper of the TROUT LT ensures precise, delicate presentation. The taper design is excellent for roll casting and single-handed spey casts. Camo (olive) head is the ideal line colour for stalking selective trout. Welded loops on both ends for easy spooling and leader changing.
* Long front taper for the softest in presentation
* Rear loaded weight for easy roll and single handed spey casting
* Built with a super supple, coldwater core and coating
* Welded loops on both ends
Colour: Camo / Beige

RIO's ultra-sophisticated line coating redefines floating line performance. Made with a groundbreaking proprietary formula, MaxCast lines float higher, shoot farther, last longer and stay cleaner. The secret? The coating's advanced hydrophobic chemistry, which actively pushes water away from the line, resulting in radically improved floatation and reduced dirt adhesion. It also allows the line to slip more easily from the surface film for longer, quieter pickups. At the same time, MaxCast's coating formulation contains a sophisticated blend of permanent slickening agents, and slickening agents that continuously migrate to the line's exterior for enhanced shooting and durability.
Tired of floating lines that work like sink tips? Fact is, the reduced coating at the narrow, tapered end of most floating lines doesn't have enough buoyancy to stay above water. RIO's MaxFloat Tips solves this age-old problem. Our all-new, proprietary tip coating formula floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without any increase in diameter. That puts maximum floatation right where you need it for reduced drag, longer presentations and quieter pickups.
Traditional, single-layer fly lines have to compromise between function and the need for durability and slickness. AgentX Technology makes the old compromise obsolete by bonding two separate coating layers onto one line. This proprietary process allows RIO line designers to optimize the specific performance of each line. For example, AgentX floating lines can use an inner layer with more buoyant microspheres, while the outer layer is formulated for maximum toughness and shooting ability. AgentX means the best of both worlds in a single fly line.

Top Fly Line - In 40 years of fly-fishing for trout, I have tried just about every major brand of trout line available. Rio Products are now my first choice for their quality, performance and price. Most of my lines are In Touch Rio Gold, a good all-purpose line, but recently I’ve discovered the Rio Trout LT. The Trout LT is designed for softer presentation and better roll-casting capability. Indeed, it is more supple and does have a softer presentation while also shooting further. I can get another 5 metres on my roll-cast than I can with the Gold. The Trout LT is my first choice for calm weather, when softer presentation is required for fussy feeder, or for my tight fishing spots where back casting is required. The In Touch Rio Gold is for windy weather, short distance, wet fly casting line.
