Casting Tip - Getting A Straight Cast

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip focuses on the importance of practicing an overhead cast and a roll cast in order to be able to make straight line casts. Setting up a neat little "course" like the one shown in this video is a great visual to aid practice, and also keeps the practice interesting.

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.
