The Importance Of Using Your Wrist

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows why it is so important to use your wrist when making a cast - both for the back cast and the forward cast. All too many casters advise beginners to tuck the rod up their sleeve to help control the wrist, but as this video shows, this creates some serious problems for the caster.

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.
