Details

Each Fathom Clean Sweep line is made with three different densities to ensure the fly travels in a very effective sweep through all depths of the water column - starting at the top, sweeping down deep, and then back to the surface again. This is achieved because of a slow sinking running line, a medium or fast sinking body, and a clear intermediate tip at the front end.

Each line has a relatively short, easy-casting head and features one of RIO's unique hang markers to illustrate when to stop retrieving, or when to fish "the hang". A welded loop on both ends makes this line very easy to rig, and a printed "Easy ID" mark on the front loop shows anglers exactly what line it is that they are using.

  • The body sinks faster than either the tip or running line resulting in a deadly “U” shaped retrieve
  • Clear 7ft intermediate front section
  • Short, quick-loading head for easy-casting and quick distance
  • Hang markers at 20ft shows where to fish “The Hang”
  • Welded loops and ID on each line for easy identification and quick changes

  • Cost versus quality/fishing capability Review by Crispy
    Design
    Quality
    Value
    The capability of this line far exceeds that of a normal sinking line since it offers a means of fishing the various depths because of the sweep effect. The welded loop at either end of the line offers effective simple arrangement. The indicator on the line for retrieve purposes makes fishing the hang consistent without the risk of over-retrieving . Whilst there are significant benefits with the line the major disadvantage is the cost and hence it is a cost quality argument for the fisherman. (Posted on 06/11/2020)
