Fly Line
RIO Lightline Weight Forward Double Taper Floating Fly Line - All Sizes
SKU 200-1-954-Lightline-P

RIO’s LightLine has been designed to load slower, more traditional action fly rods such as bamboo, glass and the more “Classic” flexing graphite rods. Built to precisely match the industry line standards, this line will not overload such rods – even at longer range. The weight distribution and short front taper ensures the line loads at close range, making it ideal for fishing on smaller creeks and streams, while the softer, supple coating ensures the line remains relaxed and easy to handle in the majority of conditions.
  • Designed for slower action rods; especially bamboo, glass and classic action graphite rods
  • Short front taper and weight distribution makes it ideal for creeks
  • Perfect for bamboo, glass and softer graphite fly rods
  • MaxFloat Tip and MaxCast technologies for the very best in performance
  • Extra-supple coating for minimal coiling and relaxed performance

    Rio Lightline WF2F

    Posted by John K order #112-5202175-1216238 on Aug 18th 2017

    I have a medium slow action 2 weight St. Croix rod that casts very well. I had used another brand of line for years and was satisfied with its performance on this rod.
    After changing out to RIO LightLine, I was pleasantly surprised. The rod casts like a dream with this line, especially on shorter casts that can be challenging for me to load the rod on.
    While I don't know how this line would cast on a fast action rod, I will be a steadfast user of LightLine on my slower action rods. This line is a definite keeper for me!
    Received the line on the second day after ordering, and price was great!

    The fly line works great on my fiberglass 5wt rod. A real plus with a slower short rods.

    Perfect for fiberglass

    Posted by Drew on Feb 19th 2017

    Just put this wf4f on my 4 weight cgr 6 ft 6 rod and it casts very well. Very smooth and makes my 6 ft 6 feel like an 8 ft rod. Very light presentation and it is perfect for use as a small stream/ river trout line and occasional bluegill and crappie on stillwater. Order#113-2182785-0597026.

    Curls Like a Pigs Tail

    Posted by David on Jul 23rd 2016

    I purchased a DT3F line for use on a Sage 389-3 LL fly rod (medium action). This line curls up on itself the worst of any line that I have ever used. I have tried stretching and straightening it, to no avail. I don't wind it tightly on the reel, but it will literally tie itself in knots when I strip in the line, and it started doing this on first use. I don't think that this has anything to do with line twist created by a fly (not using a hackled fly) or roll casting (happens before I do any roll casting). The line just seems to have a severe case of memory curl, even though it's being used on a large arbor reel.
    I also have to say that this line feels anything but light on this rod. I'm sure that the DT taper contributes, but this line feels like it's a 5 weight. I replaced a Rio Gold line with the Lightline because it felt like the Rio Gold line was overloading the rod a little bit, but the "lightline" is worse. I should have gone with a Rio Trout LT DT, which works fairly well on some of my other medium action rods.
