Each line is built on RIO’s low-stretch, low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to straighten and ensures that the fly line never retracts into coils on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions. The DirectCore Tarpon line is available in 9 through 12-weight sizes and comes in a sea grass/orange/sand color scheme. Find them at your nearest RIO dealer for $119.99.
