InTouch Salmo/Steelhead Fly Line

From winter steelheading on the Olympic Peninsula to epic salmon runs on the Kenai, be sure your reel is spooled up with Rio's InTouch Salmo/Steelhead Fly Line wherever you happen to be chasing anadromous salmonids. Designed with versatility in mind, the InTouch Salmo/Steelhead line sports a long head that will spey cast heavy salmon and steelhead patterns—think intruders and bullet heads—and has a rear line weight distribution that makes single-handed roll casts possible when fishing egg patterns under an indicator, if you should feel so inclined.

Rio built this line around its ConnectCore low stretch core, which eliminates stretch in the fly line by about 30% when compared to traditional floating fly lines. A dirt-repellent finish helps your line stay clean, while a front welded loop allows different tips and leaders to be easily attached to the line.

Good Line

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This line floats nicely and you can throw it a mile. Works well for steelhead, but I'm not so sure about salmon as I have never used it for that. Seems like you wouldn't have a problem targeting salmon with it.
