Choosing The Best Line & Leader To Fish Terrestrials

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows what the best fly line and leader is for casting and fishing large terrestrial flies. With big flies, a line with the wrong taper design can make it pretty hard to cast them efficiently, and to get good turnover. Choosing the right line (and leader) can make this so much easier.

RIO's Fly Fishing Tips series are short, less-than-a-minute videos, each bought to you by a RIO employee or ambassador and showing a single fly fishing tip to help you become a better fly fisher. The series includes freshwater, saltwater and Spey topics, and a mix of casting, fishing and gear tips - some basic, some technical, and everything in between.

Each new tip is released on RIO's Facebook and Instagram pages every Friday, so if you like the sound of this series and want to get these tips quickly, be sure to follow RIO on these platforms.
