Rio Striped Bass Fly Line

Casting heavy or wind-resistant flies has always been a challenge, even for good casters. Rios Jim Vincent and Simon Gawesworth collaborated with Bob Clouser in developing the Clouser line. Bob is the famed fly tier, guide, instructor and conservationist best known for inventing the Clouser Minnow, one of the most versatile flies for both fresh and saltwater.

The Clouser line, with its unique reverse compound taper and a bullet front taper, turns over heavy flies into the wind without effort and smoothly transfers energy to prevent the characteristic “kick” with heavily weighted flies.

The Striped Bass Intermediate

The Rio Stripped Bass line offers a 40 ft clear AquaLux head and a super slick, luminous running line with XS Technology that can be charged with a flashlight for night fishing. The supple cold water core results in smooth casting and minimal coiling. Based on the Clouser line (see above), the short bullet taper propels large flies to Irish Bass with ease and perfect presentations.

Includes welded loop on both ends.
