Rob also explains the importance of keeping a tight line when fishing this way, and ends the film by catching a beautiful brown trout.
This film is an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to learn this essential river fly fishing skill, and get to grips with catching rising trout on a river.
RIO’s “How To” videos are a series of short films that explain all you need to know to learn a particular way to fish, or cast. Where applicable, each film talks through the gear that you need, shows how to rig the gear, how to read the water, and how to fish that particular technique. These educational films are packed with information and top tips designed to improve the knowledge and skill level of all fly fishers.
