RIO’s Mainstream bass fly lines have been developed to meet the overall needs of the average and novice fly fisher, and are designed to optimize rod performance with slightly heavier and shorter head lengths. Every Mainstream line undergoes the same rigorous production processes and quality control standards as all RIO fly lines, and is made in RIO’s Idaho manufacturing facility. Each bass line is built with a warm water coating over a supple memory-free core, for the best in performance.

A NOTE ABOUT RETRIEVE: Reels are designated as either left and or right hand retrieve, which simply refers to the hand used for reeling in line. Modern reels convert easily between right or left hand retrieve. However, it is important for an angler to designate how they want the reel set up before the backing and line are spooled onto the reel. Many right-handed casters use left hand retrieve on their reels so they don’t have to switch hands between casting and fighting a fish. Other anglers prefer to use their dominant hand for both casting and reeling, so they switch hands on the rod after a fish is hooked.
