RIO InTouch Switch Chucker Floating Spey Fly Line
- RIO’s powerful “Switch Chucker” Taper on this fly line for Switch Rods (or shorter Spey Rods) is similar to a Skagit Shooting Head but is integrated and has a very long handling section which makes fishing indicator nymph rigs easy and can bomb out the biggest streamers on sink tips as well.
- RIO’s ConnectCore Technology (ultra-low stretch fly line core means more energy transfer to load your rod for your casting and better hook set, reaction times and feel on fish)
- RIO’s AgentX Line Technology (Traditional, single-layer fly lines have to compromise between function and the need for durability and slickness. AgentX Technology makes the old compromise obsolete by bonding two separate coating layers onto one line. This proprietary process allows RIO line designers to optimize the specific performance of each line. For example, AgentX floating lines can use an inner layer with more buoyant microspheres, while the outer layer is formulated for maximum toughness and shooting ability. AgentX means the best of both worlds in a single fly line.)
- RIO’s Xtreme Slickness Line Technology (Every fly fisherman is looking for a slicker line, and for good reason. Slicker line means longer casts, which is something all anglers strive to achieve. XS Technology is the latest development from RIO’s lab coats that focuses on creating an ultra slick line, with dirt-repelling tendencies.)
- RIO’s Easy ID (laser printed on the line so you’ll never have to guess when the sticker falls off your spool!)
- RIO’s Welded Loops front and rear (super strong and super easy to attach tips, leaders and backing)
- RIO’s DualTone color marking system (Improves casting accuracy by making it easy to gauge exact distances with a quick glance)- Gray/Orange/Green (Head/Load Zone/running line)
- Sizes from a light Trout Spey 2-weight to a Chrome tamer 9-weight.
- Made in the USA (Go team, go!)

The RIO InTouch Switch Chucker is a very easy casting, extremely powerful line with a short-head designed to cast indicators, sink tips and large flies. It is the best choice of Switch line for fishing at close quarters with nymphs or bomb it out there with streamers.
Shop Staff Notes: The Switch Chucker is a fun line to fish! It has all the power of a Skagit line but since it’s a full, integrated fly line with a long, 14′ handling section at the back of head, it allows you to strip your streamer without the catching of loop-to-loop head systems and allows you to mend well with a nymph set up out to about 35′ (where most of your nymphing takes place). This line definitely has more power to punch out big bugs or handle wind than the regular Switch Lines or Scandi Lines. A great choice for the beginner or if you are looking for a line that does a little more than a shooting head. You can use MOW tips on this line for deep dredging or Versileaders for most streamer and soft hackle swinging. We have used this line for both Trout Spey and for Steelhead/Big Game. It’s also a good line for skating dries for Steelhead. ConnectCore is a legit technology! You can feel the rod load more on longer casts and you sure can notice it when setting the hook and fighting fish (or pulling your fly out from a snag!). This line works very well with our CCFS Thingamabobber Nymph Rig or RIO Spey Versileaders.
