Use The Same Leader Length For Casting Practice

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip Simon Gawesworth explains why it is so important to practice casting always using the same length of leader. Getting familiar with how far the fly is away from your fly line by using exactly the same leader length every time, ensures a far greater level of distance control when targeting a cruising bonefish, aiming at a rising trout, or trying to land your fly really close to a bank.

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.
