Learn The Tuck Cast

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how to learn a very useful cast called the Tuck Cast, aka the Nymph Pitch Cast. This cast is designed to make a fly land heavily on the water to quickly penetrate the surface film and sink. It also creates slack at the end of the line allowing the fly to sink before any drag hits it.

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.
