Made from 100% fluorocarbon the Fluoroflex is the strongest, thinniest fluorocarbon available on the market today.

    Tried and True

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you're reading reviews then you already know. Rio is the gold standard and Fluorocarbon is the cream of the crop. I use it for both dries and subsurface applications and I've never had any issues. Grab the guide spools and you'll never have to worry about running out!

    RIO, Dos, Tres

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Even if you were a fish with superman vision, you're probably not going to even see or notice this line in the water.

    I stick with the Flouro on both subsurface rigs and dries. I haven't had any issue with have the line stay dry, but would tend to lean toward going Fluoro underwater and standard Powerflex when tossing out those dries.

    RIO has you covered for all your rigging needs! Keep enabling your fishing addiction and grab a few spools for good measure.. you can never be TOO prepared out on the water.

    Guide Go-To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Have fished Rio ever since I started guiding/working within the fly fishing industry. The guide spool comes in real handy as you dont have to worry about skimping on your droppers or extending those leaders.



    Fluoro is always a good bet when dropping those bugs below the surface and gives you a nice piece of mind that you are covering your ass for presenting bugs.



    Some people dont like the idea of going from fluoro to your dries, however in sticky situations I dont hesistate and just give the line a small amount of greasing and have not had any issues, pictured is a big brown taken on top with 5x fluro

    Guide Go-To

    If you nymph, you need fluoro

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you are going to fish subsurface... nymphing or streamers, hell, even emergers! You need to get fluoro. More supple than mono, not to mention invisible to the well tuned fish eye underwater. I've found the best method is to get either all odd x spools or all even x spools and build up your leaders that way. I myself went with the evens. Unless you have the privilege of chucking dries all the time, pick up some fluoro and catch some more fish.

    My Go To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For as long as I have been fly fishing Rio Fluoroflex has been my go to for tippets. I find myself using this on just about all of my nymph rigs in any tricky situation and even some smaller dries for really picky fish.



    While fluoro does tend to sink a bit more than mono, I still go with the fluoro for those super picky tailrace fish that just look away at everything else, just need reapplication of floatant once in awhile.



    These tippets are the strongest of the strong, bottom line. I have fished Orvis, Umpqua, Sci Angler, and Trouthunter Tippets and I still prefer all around Rio for my needs.



    It even fooled this Frying Pan fish

    My Go To

    You can't go wrong with Rio.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been fly fishing for five years and switched from Orvis to Rio two years ago. Why? My experience has been it's more supple (Orvis Mirage fluoro was just baaaaad) and just as strong or stronger. Fluoro in general is a better choice than mono for subsurface presentations (you should know this already). It's stronger than mono and thinner. But beware, when abrasion gets bad the fluoro will get milky and will get pretty visible—check your tippet often. That said, when conditions call for near invisible and strong tippet that drops faster than mono, go with Rio. I use it for nymphs, streamers, eggs, in clear or dirty water. It's my subsurface go to.

    You can't go wrong with Rio.

    Nymphs, Streamers, Hopper/Dropper

      This is strong tippet, it also does not have fiber optic properties like monofilament tippet does, so it will not carry light down through the water on a nymph rig on those bright sunny days. It works great with hopper/dropper rigs as well. Although it does not float as well as mono big foam hoppers will still float well on the surface. Using it on a hopper allows the fluoro to drop down into the water column and out of the surface tension, which creates much less light refraction. Its abrasion resistance lets your nymphs and streamers get tossed or stripped against the rocks/sand/plant life without compromising the integrity of your tippet. I still use mono for small dries ties with natural materials that don't float as well on their own.
