The Bow & Arrow Cast

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip Chris Walker explains and demonstrates how to make a "Bow & Arrow Cast". This cast in invaluable to anglers fishing small rivers and where overgrowth prevents any type of regular fly cast. Though not a distance cast at all, this cast is still an extremely important cast to have in your quiver.

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.
