How To Correctly Release A Trout

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how to quickly and correctly release a trout, and minimize any stress it might go through. If you do want to practice catch and release, knowing the best practices for returning the fish to the water safely is essential.

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.
