Rio Gold Fly Line Reviews
Still A Great Line Review by John E
After reading Tridents thorough reviews on a number of fly lines, I took Ben's recommendation on the 3WF Rio Gold (Melon/Dun) for my 8-6 3 wt Winston GVX. This line worked great for me. It enabled me to cast easily to 45 ft, in a fair amount of wind. The line delivered a small dry fly very gently when paired with a 9 ft Rio Suppleflex # 5 leader.
Wish It Was Tougher Review by David
I used this line on my three weight for small Driftless trout streams in the Midwest. For the most part it cast well with a variety of flies. However, I thought it's durability was questionable at best. I didn't even get a seasons worth of casting out of it due to all the nicks and cracks that happened in the line. I am not saying I am best caster but I was surprised. I switched to the Scientific Anglers Trout line and did not have this problem. 75 dollars for less than a season of fishing is tough to swallow.
Replacing all my freshwater lines Review by Ed
This is the best line I have ever used. It's smooth and accurate. But most of all it doesn't spook fish. I fish tailwaters in Arkansas and you can cast near, over, all around fish without spooking them. The pale sage color doesn't faze them. I'm a decent fisherman, by no means great, but I consistently do better than the other people around me. I'm convinced the line is the difference. The fact that it's easy to cast is icing on the cake. One by one, I'm replacing all my brightly colored fly lines with Rio Gold.
