The new Fulling Mill Masterclass Fluorocarbon has the lowest refractory index of any other fluoro on the market, making it the least visible in water to fish. It's also the densest allowing it to cut through the surface tension quicker than ever before. Masterclass has a superb Diameter to Strength ratio so you can rest assured that it's incredibly strong, ultra supple and has great knot strength. With interlocking spools and a tangle-free band, this revolutionary fluorocarbon will certainly help you catch more fish.
Created with a premium grade Japanese raw material and produced with 21st Century German precision engineering, this is the most advanced fluorocarbon on the market today. The ideal fluorocarbon tippet for Trout, Grayling, Salmon, Sea Trout and Saltwater anglers.
RIO’s newest tippet material is an ultra-strong, 100% fluorocarbon with exceptionally high tensile strength. The material is very easy to tie knots in, with high knot strength and a smooth finish that ensures knots seat easily and tightly. The high break strength to diameter ratio makes this a fantastic fluorocarbon for the trout fly fisher. RIO is proud to introduce “half sizes” of core trout diameters, giving anglers an extra choice when faced with the decision to choose between, say 4X and 5X. Our new 6.5X, 5.5X and 4.5X sizes will make those decisions easier. Each spool has 30 yards of top quality material spooled on, though for those who use a lot of fluoro, our Guide spools each have 100 yards spooled on. We also offer Fluoroflex Strong in a “3-Pack”, which includes three, 30-yard spools of tippet packaged in a reusable, clear plastic cup. The 3-Packs are available in both a 4X, 5X, 6X option, & a 3X, 4X, 5X option.
With Best-In-Class knot-strength, abrasion resistance and ultra-low visibility, Deceiver X is the premium standard in fluorocarbon material. Deceiver X pays tribute to the original & first fluorocarbon tippet brought to fly-fishing 20 years ago, Umpqua Deceiver. 50 Yard Spool
Tippet rings are a great way to extend the life of your leaders and tippets. Very popular with Euro style nymphing.
A leader with a tippet ring turns over perfectly. Use lightweight Tippet Rings when fishing dry flies. Just tie the tippet ring to a leader with a clinch knot, and then add the required tippet in the same way. Tapered leaders last longer with a tippet ring since the leader isn't shortened every time tippets are replaced. Tippet rings also make it amazingly simple to add droppers. They work well for European Style Nymphing and for Indicator nymph fishing. 10 per pack
With extensive research, development and field testing, we are proud to announce the most premium Fluorocarbon trout tippet offering on the market. This tippet is formulated with a “Top Secret” blend giving it the perfect balance of knot strength, suppleness and abrasion resistance.
With very little stretch, Phantom X Fluorocarbon Tippet allows you to detect the most subtle takes. A unique chemical process of combining Fluorocarbon monomers into polymer chains results in abrasion resistance, sensitivity, density, invisibility and strength never seen before in Fluorocarbon tippet. 30 yards per spool
When fish are sitting high in the water feeding on emergers or dry flies, nylon is certainly the tippet material to reach for. Nylon has a lower density rating compared to that of fluorocarbon, so it sinks at a slower rate allowing you to present your flies higher in the water column for longer.
As a rule of thumb, whether they fish rivers or lakes, many anglers tend to use nylon when dry fly fishing – it’s extremely supple and allows your flies to drift freely on the water surface without too much surface tension, much like the real thing. However more recently, competitive anglers have shown the advantages of fishing nymphs and buzzers on a method called the ‘Washing Line’, where they want their flies to hang in the surface film throughout the whole retrieve.
If you fish shallow reservoirs where weed is an issue, or you want to present your flies in the most natural way possible as close as you can to the surface, give the Fulling Mill Masterclass Nylon a try.
RIO’S Euro Nymph Leader is a uniquely designed tapered leader, and ideal for European nymphing techniques. The leader starts with 9’ of a milky-white tapered nylon for visibility, which is then attached to 22” of RIO's 2X, two-tone Indicator Tippet material, for maximum visibility in all light conditions, and to make subtle strike detection easier. The leader ends with a tippet ring, allowing anglers to attach their own tippet to match the water type and conditions.

After not finding the very best leader building material possible, one was created specifically with euro-style nymphing in mind. Stiff to help turn over flies but not too stiff to still maintain feel, abrasion resistant, straightens very well, and camo colored for close approaches. This might be the last leader material you'll ever need.
A unique two-layer construction means this 100% fluorocarbon tippet is the strongest we’ve ever offered: up to 33% higher knot strength. A softer fluorocarbon outside layer helps knots seat properly and increases overall knot strength, while the harder fluorocarbon core provides exceptional tensile strength. Supreme Fluorocarbon tippet is also more supple than most other options, providing better drag free drifts while maintaining a stealthy footprint.
Innovative 13', 2X multicolor knotless leader uses color to allow the angler to see and follow the leader when nymphing. 12" of bright orange butt section, with a perfection loop for easy connection to fly line, changes to an opaque white. The last 2' of the leader is a tri-color 8" of orange, 8"of chartreuse, and 8" of white. The bottom is finished with a 2mm tippet ring which allows easy addition of desired tippet. The leader is knotless save the perfection loop at the top and the tippet ring at the bottom. 8 ¾ lb. breaking strength.
