Rio Lake Series Sub-Surface Hover Fly Lines
The Rio Hover Intermediate is an updated fly line, particularly suited to fishing nymphs and wet flies extremely shallow in stillwaters like lakes and estuaries. This line is especially suited to fishing both wets and dries in lakes on windy days to prevent line drift.
The Rio Hover Intermediate fly line is easy to cast and makes lake and estuary fishing a pleasant prospect - on the windiest days.
Unique line feature: The Rio Hover Intermediate fly lines sink at the slowest imaginable rates. This makes them perfect for presenting nymphs, wet flies, and even dry flies in still waters like lakes and spring creeks on very windy days, by preventing line-creep that interferes with your retrieve presentaion.
Sink Rate: Roughly 1.0" per second, making this the slowest sinking fly on the market these days.
Line Color: The entire line is a pale olive green, blending well in the majority of fishing environments.
Line Taper: This line has a 37-44' head length and is clear, making for a slow, consistent depth presentation that is so effective.
Overall/Head Length approximately 90-100Õ/39-44Õ, balanced to the line weight.
Floating Properties: The Rio Hover Intermediate fly line head section sinks at a rate of about 1.0" per second.
Density Compensated Tip: The entire head section of the Hover line will essentially sink all at the same rate, so you do not get an uneven depth on your retrieve and the fly really does fish where you want it - just under the surface.
Line shooting: This line shoots well because the running line is slick and the head loads the rod well and will achieve very fishable distances.
Line Mending: This is no-mend fly line intended for lakes and the slowest flowing waters.
Welded Loops: The front end of these Hover fly lines is equipped with a welded loop.
