You will NOT be sorry, Rio is awesome line. What is the nymph line, a WF with a different taper?

CoolIn today's high tech world I don't think that one can go wrong buying a line from any reputable manufacturer. I just happen to prefer SA Master Series lines. As with any other good lines they don't come cheap.

RIO is a great company which makes fantastic lines. Does this series have the new "agent-X" on it? I heard it floats like a cork.

I have been using the Cortland Dyna Tip and it is one of the ultra floating lines. I Love it. I also have the Sylk line. Pretty neat line.

CoolHey there Curtis to answer your question - Yes Rio has developed a radically new Super Floatation Technology that is five times lighter than the standard microspheres used in fly line manufacturing. I guess one could say that AgentX is the future of fly line manufacturing.

I cheat. On all my floating lines, I either cut off the pre existing loop or on the lines that don't have a loop, I attach Orvis Hyfloat tippet material and make a small butt section with either a loop or I tie one of my self tied tapered leaders. Any line will float with that stuff.

Rio is my second choice when it come to fly fishing. Well I should say for dry fly fishing. I love that Triangle Taper from Wulff. Rio is my first choice for everything else. 3M is a close second
