Fish The Hang

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip Simon Gawesworth talks about fishing "The Hang" - an essential technique for lake anglers who fish sinking lines.

At the end of a retrieve too many anglers stop the retrieve and immediately make a cast - little knowing that trout follow the fly underwater. Fishing the hang keeps the fly in the water a little longer, and allows those following trout an opportunity to grab the fly.

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.
