RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip, RIO ambassador Jon Cave shows how to correctly set the hook when saltwater fly fishing. Jon's tips include how to hold the rod to get maximum hook penetration, and how to angle the rod to achieve the most pressure on the fish during the fight.

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.
