Rio Elite Bonefish
RIO’s Elite Bonefish line has a long head and back taper to smooth out the loop, and to make long efficient casts, while the mid length front taper produces great turnover and easy presentation of typical bonefish flies. Each line is built on RIO’s low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to anneal (stretch) and lies perfectly straight on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions. In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, creating the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
The Bahamian colorway has its first color change at 30ft. Other lines with Surefire change at 20ft.
The core strength of this line is as follows:
- WF6 – WF7 = 30lb (13.6kg)
- WF8 – WF9 = 45lb (20.4kg)
RIO’s triple color line marking system that makes it easy to gauge distances and load, with a quick glance.
RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.

Back Welded Loop
A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the end of the fly line for fast rigging to backing.
DirectCore is RIO’s low-stretch core used in tropical lines. DirectCore stretches 30% less than other tropical cores, is exceptionally easy to pull coils out of, and lies exceptionally straight on the water.
SlickCast creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market – producing the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line.
