Rio InTouch Deep

The new InTouch series of freshwater lines feature two unique technologies. First, a non-stretch "Connect-Core" that produces a fly line with virtually no stretch. Second, a "hang marker" showing the angler when the sinking line is coming to the end of the retrieve. This eliminates the frustration of stripping a line in too close, making it hard to re-cast.
$79.95

SA Chard's Grand Slam

If you’re a saltwater angler take a close look at the new Mastery Textured Professional Taper lines developed with the assistance of professional flats guide, Captain Bruce Chard. Labeled the Grand Slam - catching Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish on the same day, they have an aggressive taper that is ideal for in-shore saltwater situations. The Grand Slam excels at turning over heavy flies and super long leaders.
$84.95

SA GPX Hover

Scientific anglers scored the best freshwater fly line at IFTD with its GPX Hover. Designed to let anglers present flies just under the surface – one to four inches. This promises to be a deadly stillwater option for fishing chronomids and emergers.

Experiences are better when shared. We all have our list of favorite places that we like to share with no one but the fish we catch, but overall, experiences are enhanced when shared with others. When stories are recounted, having that dependable fishing partner to fill in the details and keep you somewhat honest makes the story even more epic.
