Searching for the perfect line for targeting bonefish and other saltwater flats species? Then look no further than RIO’s new Bonefish Quickshooter, says the US manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet materials.
The line has already won acclaim at the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show (IFTD) in Reno, where it received the award for the Best New Saltwater Fly Line for 2013.
The US company has designed what it believes to be the perfect line for anglers wading the flats in low light conditions and for novice or occasional saltwater anglers.
“The short, easy-casting head loads the rod quickly, while the taper design allows for quick, short-range casts when necessary, yet delivers fast, accurate casts and turns over large flies with ease,” says RIO.
“The line features AgentX technology which ensures the line floats high, is easy to pick up and keeps the running line afloat. A medium-stiff core and hard, tropical coating prevents the line from wilting in tropical heat, and welded loops in both ends allow anglers to change leaders and rig with lightning speed and ease.”
RIO’s DualTone colour system marks the sweet spot of the line and the aqua blue/sand tone helps with stealthy presentation. Bonefish Quickshooter is available in WF7F through WF9F.
