S3 E2 How To Wade Fish for Bonefish

This episode of RIO’s “How To” series takes you to the magnificent flats of Cuba, with Simon Gawesworth. In this film, “How To Wade Fish For Bonefish”, Simon offers numerous great tips for wade fishing a flat. Though the majority of anglers fish for bonefish out of a flats boat, there are frequent times when an angler needs to get out of the boat to wade a flat. Some anglers prefer the hunter/stalker element of wade fishing, while many anglers simply don’t want to go out in a boat, and prefer to do their own thing.

Whatever the reason, if you are going to wade a flat for bonefish (or redfish), this film will make sure you are prepared to slip on your wading shoes and enjoy and maximize, your time on the water.

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. Each one is bought to you by a RIO employee or a RIO brand ambassador.

The Ready Position for saltwater fly fishing by RIO Products

The Ready Position for saltwater fly fishing

The “Ready Position” is something all experienced saltwater anglers automatically get to before they start fishing. This position makes it easy to start casting, means an angler makes less false casts before taking the shot and also reduces tangling that can occur in the heat of the moment. It is a vital position to get to and if you are a relative novice saltwater angler, this tip will really improve your day on the water.

Hardcore Skullz

I’ve got an order of fish skulls on the way, and so I have been looking at some of the patterns that they are being used for. I found this tasty streamer tied up by Hardcore Fly Fishing on youtube. If you are not a fan of the hard stuff, turn down the volume, but personally, I like it, and do enjoy the post production editing they do. This is another saltwater pattern, but you could easily tie it for pike or trout with a couple small changes in the hook and length.
