“Here at RIO, we realize that there are a lot of fly lines on the market, and a great number of fly fishers are confused by the choices available,” says Simon Gawesworth, RIO brand manager. “We believe in making it easier for anglers to choose the right fly line for a given situation, and this app is the next step in our education process.”
Available for iPhone, iPad and Android, this free app starts by asking which type of rod you will use - if you can't find your particular model in the extensive database you can always choose something similar, or ask us instore for some suggestions. The app leads you through the rod make and model to water type, environmental conditions, geography, species, line density, and the specific fly fishing application desired. Once each step is completed, the app offers line choices where users can dive deeper into the specifics of each line, or visit RIO’s website to find out even more info, whether its a Trout line, a Spey line, shooting head or even just a Versa-Tip!
Gawesworth adds “This app is an incredibly useful asset for retailers and consumers alike and certainly makes it very simple to choose the right fly line for most fishing situations. Imagine a specialty Trout fly shop that has a customer come in asking for advice on a line for Tarpon fishing in Cuba. With a few taps of the app, the perfect line will be revealed – ensuring both angler and retailer are happy.”
