Tippets: Fishing the Upstream Dry Fly, Veterans and Fly Fishing

  • The seventh episode of season two of RIO’s How To series focuses on “How To Fish The Upstream Dry Fly.” RIO ambassador Rob Parkins “explains the advantages of fishing a dry fly upstream, and talks about the correct angles to cast the fly so as to reduce drag and not spook fish.”
  • Fly fishing can be anything you want it to be—from simple to complicated, solitary or with friends. “If you view fly fishing only as a means of connecting a hook to the mouth of a fish, it will be that for you,” writes Bob Reece. “However, if you chose to also use it as a means to give back, it will change lives.” Read about veterans and fly fishing in Recce’s article via Gink & Gasoline.
