RIO Elite Scandi Outbound Spey Fly Line

Product Code

Introducing the all-new RIO Elite Scandi OutBound, bringing together the UK's top-selling Scandi line and RIO’s groundbreaking SlickCast technology!

This perfect combination will take your spey casting to a whole new level, providing you with the slickest, fastest and best performing Scandi line on the market today.

Models Available: Floating and Hover

Sizes Available: 7/8 - 10/11

With the same superb tapers as the lengendary RIO Scandi/AFS Heads, the Elite Scandi OutBound is a short-bellied, integrated line designed to cast easily and load quickly. It is a fantastic choice for anglers of all abilities and ideal for casting in tight situations. The rear weight distribution and long front taper make this line easy to cast, allowing energy to transfer effortlessly through to the fly.

These amazing lines are available in two densities, Hover and Floating. This Hover version is back by popular demand and a proven fish catcher over the years. Used in conjunction with RIO Versileaders, the Elite Hover can get surprisingly deep – more so than multi-tips in certain flows – yet still maintain carry. So lighter and/or smaller flies can be used to achieve depth without over-compromising swing speed, and often without the need to mend if that is what’s required to keep the speed up. The Floating version is ideal for fishing higher up in the water, usually over the warmer months and in low water conditions.

RIO’s SlickCast creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market with the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line. This results in increased casting distance and extended longevity. The reduced friction of SlickCast enables the line to shoot through the guides with less resistance leading to longer, effortless casts, while the introduction of RIO's ConnectCore Plus brings even more benefits. This low-stretch core improves line control and increases sensitivity, allowing you to detect even the slightest of takes. This heightened sensitivity enables quicker reactions for effective hook sets, especially when dealing with subtle takes or when fishing at distance.
