Fish A Sinking Line In Shallow Water

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how to fish in shallow water with a sinking line and avoid snagging the bottom. This is a particularly good tip if you are floating around on a lake, and temporarily drift over some shallow water when using a sinking line, and don't want to change to a floating line.

IO'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.
