Tell Your Guide What Your Casting Skill Level Is

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip, RIO ambassador Paula Shearer talks about the importance of letting your guide know what your casting skill level is before you start fishing with them. This common sense approach ensures the guide knows what you are, and what you aren't, capable of. This is particularly good advice when on a saltwater flats trip, when casting skill is everything.

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.
