Keep Your Rod Low During A Retrieve

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows the importance of keeping your rod tip down low when retrieving the fly. Keeping the rod tip low aids in detecting the take, fast hook sets, better/cleaner casts and reduces any disturbance caused by the line slapping the water on each strip.

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.
