The Advanced Flight Spey lines from Rio have a long front taper that ensures the softest of presentation and a design that loads the rod up easily- resulting in extremely effortless casts of prodigious distances. They are a joy to cast and incredibly easy to get the feel of. Overall head length on these is 37'.
For the very best in presentation and control attach one of RIO's VersiLeaders to the front end.
The floating version has the running line already attached and is a subtle green that will not spook fish in the clearest of water and features a black transition piece to help determine the head and a bright yellow running line.
Grain weights and rough line weights are listed.
