Tuesday Tips Video: Understanding Fly Lines


Over the past few weeks, we’ve posted the first few videos in a great new series called “Getting Started in Fly Fishing,” from Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outiffters in Columbus, Ohio. In Episode 8, Flechsig walks you through the various options for choosing the right line to match your equipment and the kind of fishing you want to do. Do you want a floating line or a sinking line? Or maybe a sinking-tip line? You’ll find these questions much easier after you watch the video. As a bonus, you’ll learning about backing, too.

Yes, this is very basic stuff, but it’s extremely useful for folks who are new to the sport. The biggest barrier to entry for anyone taking up a new activity is lack of information. Stay tuned to learn more!
