The perfect line for Tarpon
The perfect line for Tarpon and other tropical species. The RIO® Tarpon line has a long back taper for smooth, controlled casts and is slightly heavier than the AFTMA standard to load rods for quick accurate casts. They are two models, one entirely floating, and other floating with a 10 ft clear intermediate tip for coping with windy days, or for getting the fly a little deeper.
The XS Technology used in its construction makes this line dirt-repelling and makes it smooth for better performance. On the other hand, with the SFT Technology (Super Floatation Technology) we put two layers of buoyant AgentX coating together producing the highest floating fly lines imaginable.
