For the 2015 tackle year RIO has added two new fly lines to their growing family of quality products.

InTouch RIO Gold has a taper design that gives incredible loop stability at distance and a front taper that delivers perfect presentation of flies between #2 and #22. The ultra low-stretch ConnectCore provides ground breaking levels of sensitivity for intuitively better cast timing, easier line lift and sharp, precise mends.

InTouch RIO Grand is a full line size heavier than the industry standard, and features more weight distribution toward the front of the line to easily load faster action fly rods. The ultra-low stretch ConnectCore provides groundbreaking levels of sensitivity for intuitively better cast timing, easier line lift and sharp, precise mends.

Both models are available in line weights WF4F thru WF8F.



As many of our regular customers are aware we have long been fans of Royal Wulff fly lines for both saltwater and freshwater applications for many reasons. Their memory is minimal, their shooting properties are unmatched and their durability is without question the best on the market. For 1015 Wulff has added the Triangle Taper Plus to their family of quality products. It is a modern upgrade to their classic fly line that revolutionized fly-casting. 2-tone coloration helps the caster visualize the head/belly junction. Triangle Tape Plus lines maintain a half size heavy western style head for quicker loading and shooting. Perfect for faster action rods and larger water. Additional features include a front loop splice, proprietary J3 coating and TRI-D ID system. Available in sizes 2 thru 9, floating.

You've seen similar products at much, much higher retail prices, hell we've sold them. The Temple Fork Rod/Reel Travel Case offers a reasonable alternative to those expensive brands. Traveling with your fly gear can be a hassle if the gear is not properly protected. TFO has designed a new version of a traveling case that incorporates some innovative features. First and foremost, this new case utilizes a "honey comb PE" frame. This means the perimeter of the case has added protection for rods and reels. The internal dividers also feature this rigid construction to keep the contents where they should be. The internal dividers can be customized with the duck footed hook and loop system. There is even a pair of visual ID sunglass storage pockets that are velour lined. Unlike most rod/reel cases the Temple Fork R/R Travel case will accommodate 4-piece rods to 11 ˝ feet in length and still be airline approved. Even if you focus on local fisheries it's a great way to keep all your gear ready for action at a moments notice. 36"X 5"X 10.5".
