The Shorty from Rio is great for beginning anglers and seasoned veterans alike! The Shorty, a 20' section of level fly line, allows you to simply loop-to-loop a section of level line onto your existing setup at whim. If you're new to the euro game and would like to try out a level line, but don't want to buy a whole line and devote a reel spool to the project then you should seriously consider The Shorty. If you're a seasoned angler who's mainly going to be fishing with a weight forward line, but would like the tight-line option if the right situation presents itself, then you too may consider The Shorty. Pairs very well with our TFF Euro Nymphing Leaders!

Here's what Rio has to say: "RIO'S EURO NYMPH SHORTY is an ultra-thin, super-sensitive fly line designed for Euro nymphing. The line is deliberately made short (20 feet) so it can be added to the front end of a regular fly line utilizing the thin welded loop on each end. The idea is that anglers can fish their normal fly fishing style with their regular trout line, and when they come to a run they want to fish Euro nymph style, they simply loop the Shorty on and start nymphing. Quick, easy and no need for an extra rod or reel."
