Start Each Cast With Tension

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip Chris Walker talks about the importance of ensuring your rod tip is low, and your line tight on the water each time you start a cast. Chris also demonstrates what happens if you don't have a low rod, or a tight line when you start, and the end result is a pretty awful cast!

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.
