Rod Tip Position When Fishing In A Lake

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how important it is to get your rod tip position correct when fishing in a lake or stillwater. Depending on whether a floating or a sinking line the rod tip position changes, and knowing where to hold your rod when retrieving with each line type will allow you to feel more grabs, and maximize your hook ups.

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.
