Correctly Setting The Drag On Your Fly Reel

RIO Products

This RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows the importance of setting the reel drag based on the fish you are chasing. Too tight a drag can result in breaking off when fighting a fish, and too loose a reel drag can result in an over spin and a tangled fly line.

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 tip will be shown 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
