RIO was founded by Jim and Kitty Vincent in 1990 in the mountains of Idaho.
Their simple premise was that exceptional fly fishing products should be built by anglers for anglers. More than twenty five years later, they are still in Idaho and still making exceptional RIO Fly Lines which are now some of the most renowned and sought after, first-choice fly lines in the world.
Their choice of and continual R&D with the very latest high-tec materials and coatings and the seemingly magical way they are combined, puts RIO fly lines out and up there with the very best.
The outstanding profiles of many of RIO’s fly lines are invented, refined and honed by RIO who work with some of the world’s most dedicated and successful game fishermen who know what works.
RIO then work their magic and hey presto.. you and I get to catch more fish!
RIO’s ‘Twin-Colour’ fly lines were among the first to help anglers both ‘see’ and thus understand how the correct amount of fly line beyond your rod tip will revolutionise your casting.
Their renowned ‘AgentX’ Technology of bonding two separate coating layers onto one creates both super-slick casting speed and extended durability.
