Product details

When fly fishing for a serious species like permit,  anglers would do well to choose the Rio Saltwater Tropical Series Elite Permit line. This purpose-built fly line is ready for the unique demands of chasing this finicky fish. This permit-specific line is made for 8-10 weight rods, and with two different color schemes to best fit a particular environment. Key Features:

  • Shooting head – This line is a shooting head style line designed for casting flies at a distance with minimal backcasts, especially in windy conditions. This particular line also has an elongated taper for more delicate presentations to "spooky" permit.
  • DirectCore – This is RIO's hot weather and low stretch core that remains supple and accurate in tropical conditions.
  • SlickCast Coating – RIO's SlickCast adds durability and water/dirt shedding properties to the outside of the line.
  • SureFire – The 3 different colors represent 3 sections of the line giving the angler quick visual feedback, for fast and accurate casts.
