Tippet rings are tiny metal rings that are an excellent accessory for rigging leaders, and without doubt the simplest way to attach more than one fly.
Tie a tippet ring on to the end of your leader, add the tippet you want to that and, as your leader shortens, simply replace the tippet from your tippet ring down, and never cut into the tapered leader.
Rigging leader for more flies
Tippet Rings are even better when fishing more than a single fly (a dropper). By tying an arm to the tippet ring, you can easily add another fly to your rig, and when the dropper gets too short to tie another fly, simply add a new arm to the tippet ring – fast, efficient and very easy!
Tippet Rings are available in two sizes, 2mm for trout, and 3mm for steelhead and streamers. They come in a pack of 10 that are attached to a small clip. Watch this short video to see an easy way to remove a tippet ring form the clip, without losing them all!
In case you missed it…
In this week’s link to the previous RIO Fly Fishing Tip, RIO ambassador Rob Parkins explains about some of the different fly floatants that are available, and when to use each one on a particular type of dry fly. Enjoy.
