Video: How to String a Fly Rod

In the latest how-to video from Ben Sittig, a.k.a Huge Fly Fisherman, he teaches you one of the first things you need to know as a fly fisher: how to string your rod so you can start casting. Although this is a simple task, we’ve all seen folks do it wrong–even folks who have been fishing for quite a while.

One thing that Ben leaves out is that you should not point your rod straight up to the sky while you’re stringing it, as this will cause the line to fall down through the guides should you lose your grip.

Even kids can do it!
