    Thanks for the heads up. I just knew that this would get me in trouble. Should be here on 12/9/2013 but I will put it under the tree for something from the guy in the red suit.

    Thanks again.

    Reading the fine print, it says that these lines are all one color.
    Now I am wondering if Rio made as production change and thus the low price?

    But for that price, I am willing to gamble a bit. Besides, I need a new line. Merry Christmas, Charlie.

    the box makes it look like the old model. the ones on rio's website have the newer box. given the discount, and the picture supplied by cabelas, it is most likely the old model rio gold.

    In the question and answer area of Cabela's form it mentions that the lines are the same but only one color. I guess we shall see.

    I had a yellow fly line. It didn't seem to scare the fish.

    One question. Why do they use such bright colors on floating fly line when sinking line is black or dark brown.

    The fish like it. Brightens up the view above and adds contrast to the intense blue sky, or the dull gray one, depending where you are.

    I don't think it matters much. When they are sitting on top of the water, back-lit from above, they all pretty much look black.

    Don't know about the free shipping. I looked at the web site and now they say FREE PICK UP AT THE STORE. My invoice says FREE SHIPPING.
    But I ordered it on Friday.

    I also looked at the web site for Rio Fly Lines and here is what they say about the Gold fly line. It comes with:

    MAX FLOAT
    MAX CAST
    AGENT X
    In the finish.
    FRONT AND REAR LOOPS
    DUAL TONE
    Colors:
    MOSS/GOLD in sizes 3 wt through 9 wt.
    MELON/GRAY DUN in sizes 3 wt through 9 wt.
    SINGLE COLOR
    Orange 4 wt through 6 wt.
    Lumalux (whatever that is) in sizes 5 wt., 6 wt., and 8 wt.

    There's something to be said when companies sell older year gear without posting it as such. It's happening way too often
