Product Code

Specifically designed to be one of the top fish-catching lines in the world for lake anglers, with ultra-slick performance.

Models Available: Hover 1.0ips and Clear 1.5ips

Sizes Available: WF5 - 8

The Premier Midge tip is a floating line with a 6ft, clear intermediate tip that sinks 1.5 inches per second or a grey hover option that sinks 1 inch per second.

This fly line is deadly effective on windy days, when fishing in shallow bays, close to lake shores or over the top of weed beds, and is perfect for fishing nymphs, emergers, and chironomids (buzzers). Each line is built with a supple coldwater core, SlickCast coating, and welded loops on the front and back for fast rigging. A must-have line for lake anglers everywhere.

  • Two 6ft options are available - clear 1.5ips or hover 1.0ips
  • For fishing unweighted nymphs and buzzers
  • Built with RIO’s exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast coating the slickest and most durable coating available
  • DualTone - Marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious color change in the line at the sweet spot.
  • Hang Marker
  • Easy ID - RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.
  • Front Welded Loop - A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the front of the fly line for fast Spey-specific rigging.
  • Back Welded Loop - A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the end of the fly line for fast rigging to the backing.
