Match Tippet Size To Fly Size

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip explains why you should use different sized tippet for different sized flies. Fly size is one of the major influences on the choice of tippet size - especially when bigger flies are used, but other factors such as wind, spookiness of fish and, of course fish size, all come into play when choosing your tippet size.

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.
