Details

One of the top fish-catching fly lines in the world and frequent winner of national and international competitions.


The Aqualux MidgeTip is a floating line with a 3ft long, clear intermediate tip that sinks about 1.5 inches per second. This line is deadly effective on windy days and when fishing in shallow bays, close to lake shores and over the top of weed beds, and perfect for fishing nymphs, emergers and chironomids (buzzers) in the top 12 inches of the water column.  Each line is built with a supple coldwater core and coating and features a welded loop in the front for fast rigging. It is a "must-have" line for lake anglers everywhere

Technology Highlights:

Extreme Slickness

Every fly fisherman is looking for a slicker line, and for good reason. Slicker line means longer casts, which is something all anglers strive to achieve. XS Technology is the latest development from RIO’s lab coats that focuses on creating an ultra slick line, with dirt-repelling tendencies.

XS (Extreme Slickness) Technology began when RIO’s chemists began reformulating conventional chemical combinations. Although RIO’s formulas were great, our scientists are fly fishers, and by definition they want an even slicker fly line - it's just part of the deal. So first, they tackled the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating and through intense scrutiny down to the polymeric mix level, (say that 10 times fast) they defined some fundamental limitations. Out went the old PVC/silicone formulas and by methodically adding a little more of this, a little less of that, and a pinch of secret sauce, the lab coats cooked up a completely new and improved recipe. With XS Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, and far less apt to attract dirt, and paired with AgentX Technology, it engineers a line that is less dense, casts further and more accurately, floats higher, lasts longer, and offers more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish.
