Rio’s Best Line and Leader for Casting Terrestrials

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows what the best fly line and leader is for casting and fishing large terrestrial flies. With big flies, a line with the wrong taper design can make it pretty hard to cast them efficiently and to get a good turnover. Choosing the right line (and leader) can make this so much easier.

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.
