Introducing the Headhunter Fly Line

Introducing the Headhunter Fly Line

Yes, it has arrived. Introducing the Headhunter Fly Line. A dry fly line designed by Headhunters manufactured by RIO for our dry fly obsessions!

After years of trying every fly line on the market – and never finding exactly what we wanted – we decided to design our own line, specifically for technical dry fly fishing on the Missouri River.

The Headhunter Fly Line is designed for the medium to long casts we perform every day. Casts that require pinpoint accuracy, long-leader turnover, delicate presentation, yet the power to defeat the ever present Montana wind.

Dead Flies Don’t Swim!

We also wanted a stealthy sky colored line with a zone that helps anglers understand how much line to have off the rod tip to maximize false casting and line pick-up. Mission accomplished. And it turns out it’s a pretty darn great line for swinging soft-hackles, presenting short-leash nymph rigs, and general attractor dry fly fishing.


Designed for Headhunters, by Headhunters

A 21.5′ front taper with a 5′ mid section followed by a 24.5 rear taper. A Double Delta Taper, and industry first, that will bring a new level of efficiency to your dry fly game.

The Performance Zone really works well. Easy line pick-up at the 25′ mark. Just strip in line until the Lime Green portion enters the rod tip and cast. The Performance Zone is 15′ in length. You can pick up the line easily from the water anywhere with in the Lime portion. And the color change is easily seen in the air too. Meaning you can use it to your advantage while false casting. The Headhunter Line is designed to cast the best within this zone. For the 25′-60′ dry fly casts we so commonly encounter.

The Lime Green section is The Performance Zone.

We have had the Headhunter Fly Line on the water for about a month. We love it. The verdict in in. Dry Fly Anglers love it. Lots of fish to hand. Lots of anglers have not only bought one, but two outfitting their 4 and 6 weight. Available in line weights 4, 5 and 6.

  • Wow!!!! Nicely done, well executed and will produce results! (Kinda like a good cast!) I can attest to HeadHunter’s Fly line, probably the best dry fly line I have ever used in 30+ years.

    Hope all is well. Congratulations on the recent launch of your in-house line brand. I purchased the 5 weight line for my Sage Method last week. I am still evaluating it. I usually run Rio Gold on the Method. The HeadHunters line seems quite a bit heavier. Can you provide your best guess on the grain weighting for the first 30 feet of line? Just trying to figure out if this an over-weighted line like a Rio Grand. Thanks and wishing you much success!


  • Still fishing Sage VPS sticks here in Michigan. Would you up line weight for these rods? Great sticks with a smooth Med-Fast action. Thanks!

    • Great question John. I would not, no. Line weight as is. There is enough energy in the Double Delta Taper to get the job done. Should match up well with the VPS for sure.

  • wow – cant recall when I’ve seen SOL fish so much AND hook up. Must be the line… 🙂

    Yes . Hooked on this day. Gotta be the shoes!

  • Take my money! …and kick ass video I love it

  • Will Rio market your line generally, or will it only be exclusively available at HH? I don’t see any mention at the Rio website.
