Barrio Fly Lines – The Best in Scotland
Barrio fly lines are designed in Scotland. They offer a worthy alternative, to the fly lines made by big manufacturers. Mike Barrio and his team live and breathe the science behind, what makes a great fly line .
The selection of Barrio lines are comprehensive.
The Barrio range includes single hand and double hand lines. There are trout and salmon lines, as well as predator fly lines for pike fishing. Alba Game Fishing carry a good stock of Barrio lines, you can enjoy trying them out on fishing days with us.
The range of lines cover dry fly, streamer fishing, distance casting, delicate presentation and spey casting.
These fly lines have been developed in Aberdeenshire, in the North of Scotland. If you are serious about fly casting, then you need to give these lines consideration. Most of the professional guides and serious casting gurus in these parts, use these lines, and for good reason.
The Barrio ISS spey line is one of our favourite salmon lines. It has an integrated head (no loop joints). The intermediate version is awesome. It has caught our guests more fish than any. This is a beautiful casting line, offering great presentation too. It has a slow sinking head, at a rate of 1.5 inches per second. This makes this an ideal choice in Autumn, when you need to get the fly down a wee bit deeper.
Barrio SLX – The Ultimate Fly Line?
The Barrio SLX, is a Spey weighted style of line. It has a rear weighted spey style head, that is good for Spey casts, but makes overhead casting a joy too. The head is marked by a change in colour, and this makes for repeatable, predictable casting, and great results.
We found the SLX to work best with tapered leaders. If you buy the heavier versions of these lines, they can throw poly leaders and heavier flies with ease. The SLX really is one of the most versatile lines out there. We use these lines on our Helios 3F 9ft 5 weight mid flex rods, and they deliver effortless loop control and accurate presentation.
Barrio lines are a game changer, even for delicate trout work
The SLX lines will appeal to advanced fly casters. They will be able to perform some amazing technical casts, such as snake rolls, snap-T, single and double spey casts. Distance casting is effortless too. We can cast the entire length of these lines with a 5 weight. These fly lines are not just for experts, they are also easily handled by beginners learning to fly fish.
You can trial an extensive range of these fly lines, when you spend a day fishing with us.
