Dry Fly Rigs

Stay true to the nature of fly fishing with rigs that'll keep the trout looking up. Designed to help deliver precise presentations, whether you're fishing tricos to Ph.D. educated brown trout on a spring creek or big bugs to happy-go-lucky cutthroat on a freestone, RIO's dry fly rigs are the perfect match.

Get Technical & Match The Hatch

If spotting rising fish and making delicate casts feel natural, RIO's Elite Tech Trout is the fly line for you. Pair it with Suppleflex leader, tippet, and a range of specialty dry flies for all your future dry fly pursuits.

Elite Technical Trout

Specifically designed for delicate presentations of small flies at range. The line has a long head and back taper to increase loop control when carrying long lengths and for making precise casts to rising fish, while the weight distribution makes it easy to turn over long leaders for technical feeders at range. This line is built with RIO's low-stretch ConnectCore Plus and proprietary SlickCast coating, resulting in exceptionally smooth, durable fly lines.

Suppleflex Leader & Tippet

RIO Suppleflex leaders and tippet are designed for delicate presentations that won't disrupt the natural movement of the fly. They are soft and supple, and tinted green, making them perfect for trout fishing with small flies when a good presentation is vital.


Anglers dream of idyllic dry fly experiences—showing up to a river alive with the buzz of a blanket hatch and dry fly box filled to the rims. From mayflies to caddis, terrestrials, and beyond, we've got what you need to make all your dry fly dreams come true.

Big Flies For Big Eats

Nothing compares to the anticipation of casting extra-large terrestrial dry flies to eager fish. To make the distance and present the fly perfectly against the opposite bank, you need to be able to cast large flies with specific techniques. RIO's Bank Robber, combined with our Powerflex leaders and tippet, is designed to do just that. Now, it's easier than ever to get your fly up against that cut bank and keep it there, cast after cast.

Premier Bank Robber

Whether fishing stoneflies, hoppers, beetles, or cicadas, the most effective presentation for terrestrials is often the same—flies should be dead drifting and tickling the bank. RIO's Bank Robber was explicitly designed for this style of fishing. Its fine front taper enables precise, accurate casts while its rear-loaded head easily carries the bushiest salmon fly patterns. The long back taper makes it easy to mend and extend a draft-free drift, while a unique, bright green section marks the ideal lengths for loading the rod and picking it up for another cast.

Powerflex Leaders & Tippet

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


There are few greater joys than throwing large terrestrial dry flies like grasshoppers or flying ants at eager trout. The anticipation of a strike is electric and leaves anglers wanting to do it again and again. Our selection of flies will deliver the eats to a bank near you.
