Correctly Winding Fly Line In On A Fly Reel

RIO Products

This RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how to correctly wind line on to a fly reel. Winding a line on loosely, or not weaving it side to side as you wind in, can cause too much line to build up in one spot on the reel. This can result in a jammed reel or fly line tangles. This top tip shows the correct way to wind line in and avoid those problems.

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 tip will be shown 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.
