Product details

The Rio Freshwater Avid & Mainstream Series Bass is an all purpose warm water fly line, designed for conventional anglers of all skill levels. These lines were built with slightly heavier and shorter heads to make casting of large(r) poppers and bass flies easier. Key Features:

  • Welded Loop at Head – The welded loop at the head allows for easy leader attachments with a loop-to-loop knot.
  • Warm Water Coating – This line has a warm water coating to help reduce coiling when fishing in warm(er) bass water.
  • Designed for Poppers – The shorter, heavier head enables anglers to load their fly rods more easily when casting.

Weight-forward 6 WT floating fly line engineered for bass fishing. The Mainstream is Rio's mid-level fly line but still performs well!
