Rio InTouch Freshwater OutBound Short Fly Line
"Very versatile."

I have a several Outbound Short lines in variety of sink rates and line weights. They are great for making quick casts out to your maximum distance. Just get the head outside the guides - it's only 30 feet long - and let it shoot. For pike and bass I like a 9 weight - the full intermediate for shallow weeds and the type 3 for deeper ones. I used a type 6 on a 6 weight for small water specie

Rio Outbound Short Fly Line
"Outspoken about Outstanding Outbound"

I have a number of these lines - floaters, full intermediates, intermediate tips, and fast sinking tips. They are great whenever casting for distance and covering lots of water is the name of the game. A bonus of their heavy weight is that if you have to snap out a quick, accurate short cast, you can feel the rod load without much line. Be sure to click on the "details" button.
