RIO Brings Its ConnectCore Metered Shooting Line to Two-Handed Anglers
IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO (September 4, 2018) – RIO continues to provide anglers with the exact tools needed to fish in the most efficient and effective manner, and that is certainly true with its new ConnectCore Metered Shooting Line.
The ConnectCore Metered Shooting Line affords longer casts, greater hookups and a higher landing ratio all while allowing anglers to better gauge casting distance. The line features RIO’s RangeFinder system with a color change every 10 feet to easily gauge how far each cast is. In addition, the RangeFinder color markings allow anglers to hook, play and land a fish, and then return to the exact same length of line they were fishing before they hooked the fish.

A Cast in the Woods: A Story of Fly Fishing, Fracking, and Floods in the Heart of Trout Country Hardcover – September 1, 2018
When angler and author Stephen Sautner bought a streamside cabin and some land in the heart of fly fishing country in the Catskill Mountains, he thought he had finally reached angling nirvana.
