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.
The Predator is the ultimate fly rod for big flies, heavy lines, and aggressive-fighting fish
It features a powerful, intuitive fast action that commands enough power to combat big gamefish and pick up and cast today’s heavy lines and massive flies. Its action is designed to perform in both freshwater and saltwater scenarios, and all components are saltwater-ready. The Predator family encompasses models ranging from spooky-bonefish duty 5-weights to big-game ready 16 weights, including unique specialty models like a 7’10” 8-weight and dedicated PIKE and MUSKY models with extended fighting butts for boatside figure-eights.
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 new PATH rod is a smooth-casting, medium-fast action graphite fly rod, offering classic performance for all levels of anglers. Rods through 6 weight have a half-wells handle with a wood reel seat for a classic look and feel, and 7 weights and above feature a full-wells grip with anodized aluminum reel seat that is ready for salt or fresh water conditions.
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.

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!
