Welcome to another installment of “Ask an Orvis Fly-Fishing Instructor,” with me, Peter Kutzer. In this episode, I demonstrate how to rig your rod when you want to move to a new fishing spot. Walking through the woods with a fly rod can be a dangerous proposition, and more than a few tips get broken this way.
The best way to rig the rod keeps your tippet from crimping, keeps the line-to-leader connection from getting stuck in the tip top, and lets you get back to fishing as quickly as possible. Good luck!
