Why Would You Ever Use A Double Taper Line?

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip Simon Gawesworth explains why he likes to use a double taper line when trout fishing. Few people use DT's these days, and when asked, most people say the best reason for using a double taper line is so you can turn it around and use a new end when one wears out. As Simon explains, there is a far better reason than that!

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.
