Creek Rigs

Creek season is always gone before you know it—so it's only natural to want to make the most of every opportunity. RIO's rigs let you get out there with the most precise presentations, even in the thick of a willow patch.

Follow The Blue Lines

We often cast a spotlight on the big trout, but exploring far-flung places and finding those hidden spots where the fish are still eager and unpressured—now that's the essence of fly fishing. RIO's Creek Rig won't take you to unexplored places, but it will ensure you're prepared when you arrive. With its precision performance when paired with ultra-light rods, you'll be able to make those short casts into tight spaces.

Premier Creek

RIO's Creek line has been designed for anglers that fish small creeks and streams. The line loads at close range, allowing anglers to make short casts of 10 to 15 feet with ease, yet has enough body and head length for those occasions when a longer cast is needed. Each line is built on a supple coldwater core for tangle-free performance and features our proprietary SlickCast coating.

Powerflex Leader & Tippet

RIO's Powerflex leaders feature a powerful butt section that provides unsurpassed turnover for effective wind penetration and to cast bushier drys and small nymphs easily. Combined with our Powerflex Tippet, anglers have a nylon terminal rig known for its superior knot strength and versatility.


Swift, cool, and buzzing with aquatic life—small creeks have only a short window to come alive. Once you discover these hidden gems, you'll want to give the trout something to really go nuts over. Our sampling of wet and dry flies does just that.
