EASY CASTING, MULTIPLE DENSITY SINK TIP LINE , designed specifically to cast large and heavy flies.
RIO’S INTOUCH BIG NASTY SINK TIP line is the perfect sink tip for casting large streamers, with a front-loaded weight distribution that easily casts the biggest of flies. The line features RIO’s Multi Density Control - a seamless blend of three or four densities that ensures the smoothest transition of energy when casting, and the best depth control when fishing. It is made with an ultra-low stretch core for the maximum in sensitivity and performance. This is the easiest casting, fishiest sink tip line ever made. The InTouch Big Nasty Sink Tip is available in Float/Hover/Intermediate, a Float/Hover/Intermediate/Sink 3, and a Float/Intermediate/Sink 3/Sink 5 options. The F/H/I is perfect for fishing flies in the top 2 feet of the water column, while the F/H/I/S3 gets flies down to 2-4 feet in depth. The F/I/S3/S5 fishes the deepest -averaging between 4 and 8 feet down.
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to slow it down and just enjoy being out on the water. The new BUTTER STICK does just that. Built using T-Glass construction on our Heritage Taper, the BUTTER STICK is a slow action glass rod that will delicately present a fly even in the tightest of places. The retro cosmetics and slower action will make every day feel like throwback Thursday.
Designed especially for the trout angler. The moderate action of the rod provides the delicacy needed for technical spring creeks, yet packs enough power for big river and boat fishing. The lightweight blank and forgiving action reduces fatigue for long days on the water.
The heavyweight champion of big game fly reels. The GRANDE reel is a fully anodized, machined aluminum reel that features our new sealed SUPER-TORQUE carbon drag system that will KO any fish you hook. After years of field testing, we bulked up the GRANDE with an over-sized palming rim, increased backing capacity, and designed an easy to locate handle and drag knob so you can make quick adjustments in the heat of the battle. Never stand down from a fight, regardless of the opponent.
Colors: Marine, Champagne, Black
The RISE continues our ongoing quest to think beyond the bounds of traditional reel designs. It features a u-shaped large-arbor and a compact carbon fiber drag system that offers smooth fish stopping torque. Lightweight design shows through in the modern aesthetic of the RISE, and thoughtful details like twin molded soft-touch handles and oversized drag knob help the reel perform in the hands of any angler.

Designed with a unique taper to meet the needs of the European nymphing methods
RIO’S Euro Nymph Leaders are designed with a unique taper to meet the needs of the European nymphing methods for competitors and first timers. These 9’ leaders are built out of a high-vis milky white tapered leader which is hand tied to 22” of our Indicator Tippet material. This gives maximum visibility in all lighting conditions to make subtle strike detection easier. The leader ends with a tippet ring and requires you to attach you own tippet to properly match the water type.
The Syndicate Aquos series of fly rods are designed and engineered to cover a variety of water, targeted species and terminal tackle configurations. Syndicate Aquos fly rods will handle a variety of fly line types, from full sink to floating tapers. These rods are built on longer than typical tapers which allows us to provide a fly rod that has plenty of power with just enough softness at the tip to protect your leader. Now in standard lengths, but with the same tippet protector tips and plenty of power to haul in heavy loads! We also wanted to offer a series of rods that would be at home in a variety of environments whether you stalk your fish in a salt marsh, high desert lake or large river. Not only will an Aquos rod allow you to hammer out accurate presentations, its unique taper and proprietary carbon, composite construction will help you absorb blistering runs, violent head shakes and the acrobatics that fish employ to bust tippets and throw flies. Hooking fish is one thing. You might as well make sure your fly rod was built to bring them to the net!
