In this episode of RIO’s “How To” series, RIO marketing coordinator Russ Miller explains how to “mend” a line when fishing a river. Mending is a vital skill for the river fly fisher and ensures a correct drift of a fly, as well as allowing the angler to make a far more effective hook set.
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 invaluable lessons for the fly fisher are packed with information and top tips, and each one is bought to you by a RIO employee or a RIO brand ambassador.
