Why Use A Tapered Leader

RIO Products

In this week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip Chris Walker shows why a tapered leader performs better than a level leader. Any time you need presentation, or for your line and leader to fully unroll, tapering, or using a knotless tapered leader, will give you the very best in performance.

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.
