How TO Choose The Right trout Line

RIO Products

In this episode of RIO's "How To Fly Fish" series, Chris Walker digs deep into trout lines, and explains how trout lines vary. He talks about the differing weights of fly lines, how tapers are designed to have different effects and end results, and talks about the significance of "head lengths".

Chris then runs through the two core line families we have at RIO - explaining the differences between the two families, and ends up looking at the four key trout tapers we sell, and explains what each one is designed to do best.

If you are looking for a trout line and unsure what to get, or are confused by the many fly line options that are available on the market, this film will be an invaluable resource.

RIO's "How To Fly Fish" videos are a series of short films that explain all you need to know to learn a particular way to fish or cast. Where applicable, each film talks through the gear that you need, shows how to rig the gear, how to read the water, and how to fish that particular technique. These educational films are packed with information and top tips designed to improve the knowledge and skill level of all fly fishers. Each one is bought to you by a RIO employee or a RIO brand ambassador.
