RIO In-Touch Switch CHUCKER Fly Line

This is an ultra LOW stretch version of the all time best selling switch line.

An easy casting, powerful line with a short head for throwing streamers, indicators and sink tips.

The Switch Chucker by Joe Rotter of Red's Fly Shop

"Ok, so I have spent nearly the last decade casting switch rods as an angler and guide. The big problem for a "utility" angler like myself has never been the rods, it has been the lines! In the Pacific Northwest we fish a variety of waters for both trout and steelhead. Some are tight rivers best fished with indicators and dead drifts, other spots might be big and wide and demand distance performance that challenge even the best spey casters. The problem arises when you want to transition from tight water indicator fishing to big water spey casting (or even big water nymphing) with the same setup. And frankly for a lot of anglers they can't afford to buy various rods, reels, and lines. They want to buy one outfit that is the best they can afford and spend the rest on gas and cheetohs. The best casting "spey style" shooting heads on switch rods are short and transition very quickly to very light running line which is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to mend and control and indicator drift. Inversely, traditional floating lines and even the Rio Switch Line doesn't shoot sink tips and swinging bugs the way we want them too. For years we have not had the right "utility line". Well, now you have it I can't complain anymore! The Rio Switch Chucker is a great shooting head that will spey cast big flies and sink tips, BUT it has a 14' handling section which makes for a "mendable" (if that is even a real word) section for indicator fishing or even overhand casting. I want you to note that the downside of this line is that it will not have the distance capabilities of a true shooting head/running line combo. A Scandi or Skagit Max Short Shooting Head paired up with a Gripshooter Running Line will outcast this line for true distance every time. Just my 2 cents worth!
