Rio FIPS Euro Nymph Fly Line

by Rio

RIO’s updated Euro Nymph line has been thoroughly vetted and approved by FIPS Mouche as “Competition Legal”. A system of special marks on the line has been endorsed and approved by FIPS Mouche, ensuring that competitive anglers do not have to waste valuable fishing time by having their line checked during competition hours.

The Euro Nymph line was designed by Steve Parrot to satisfy the need for a one size fits all European style nymphing line that is competition legal. The line is built on a thin diameter, low stretch, supple core to maximize sensitivity and allow for lightning fast hook sets, while a highly visible tip helps anglers detect the slightest of strikes. This line is designed specifically for European style nymphing techniques, such as “French”, “Czech”, “Polish” and “Spanish” styles. The specific line weight of this fly line is 2 to 5 weight.


Our View

Very thin and with the right amount of stiffness, these lines are perfect for shortline nymphing techniques. You'll find these lines also cast adequately well and can deliver a single dry fly to wary trout. Compared to the other nymphing specific lines out there, we prefer the Rio because of it's orange tip which is highly visible for detecting the most subtle of takes. For more information on these deadly, competition inspired techniques, read FlyStream magazine Issue 8 and check out this informative blog on how to properly rig up.
