RIO Products, manufacturer of lines, leaders, tippet, flies, and accessories for the demanding fly fisher, introduces the Fly Clips and Twist Clips, accessories anglers will find useful in many situations.
RIO’s new Fly Clips and Twist Clips are fast connection clips that are tied to the end of the leader and allow anglers to change flies with ease and speed. They also help prevent leaders, tippet, and droppers from getting too short.
Fly Clips are small metal clips that require a simple pop-on, pop-off move to change flies and work well on smaller dries, nymphs, and soft hackles. Fly Twists are larger and require a twist move to attach the fly. These larger clips are ideal for streamers and salmon/steelhead patterns. Simply tie the appropriate sized clip on the end of the leader and either clip or twist the fly on.
Each version comes in three sizes (sizes 1, 2 & 3) with 10 to a pack. Fly Clips retail for $3.99 per pack and are suitable for hook sizes 12-16 (#1), 8-12 (#2) and 4-8 (#3), while the Twist Clips retail for $5.99 per pack and are suitable for hook sizes 6-10 (#1), 4-8 (#2) and 1/0-4 (#3). Find them at your nearest RIO dealer today.
