Don't Pull On The Rod To Break Off Snags

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip, Rob Parkins shows how to correctly break off your fly when attached to a snag, and eliminate any chance of breaking the rod.

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.
