Tippet

Tippet is the last part of line that you tie in the leader, and attach your fly with. Tippet is made from Nylon and Fluorocarbon.

Fluorocarbon has a similar refractive index as water, which makes it nearly invisible underwater; a distinct advantage if the fish are leader shy. It is easier to untangle because it is slightly stiffer than nylon.

Nylon is a little more visible underwater, has good knot strength, floats well, and a great choice if the clarity of water is a little off or fishing dry flies.

RIO’s newest tippet material is an ultra-strong, 100% fluorocarbon with exceptionally high tensile strength. The material is very easy to tie knots in, with high knot strength and a smooth finish that ensures knots seat easily and tightly. The high break strength to diameter ratio makes this a fantastic fluorocarbon for the trout fly fisher. 

RIO is proud to introduce “half sizes” of core trout diameters, giving anglers an extra choice when faced with the decision to choose between, say 4X and 5X. Our new 6.5X, 5.5X and 4.5X sizes will make those decisions easier. Each spool has 30 yards of top quality fluororcarbon tippet.
  • Made from 100% fluorocarbon
  • High tensile strength
  • Easy to tie
  • Ideal for: Dry flies, soft hackles, nymphs

Tippet Rings are small, very strong and lightweight, and make rigging and tippet replacement fast and easy. A leader with a tippet ring turns over perfectly, and they are light enough to use when fishing dry flies. Just tie the tippet ring to a leader with a clinch or improved clinch knot, and then add the required tippet in the same way. Tapered leaders last longer with a tippet ring as the leader will not be shortened every time the angler replaces the tippet.

Tippet rings also make it extremely easy to add droppers, and are an excellent choice for European Style Nymphing and for Indicator nymph fishing.

This package includes 10 Tippet Rings, threaded onto a snap swivel.  It is easy to drop those rings once they are not threaded on the swivel, so thread the first ring onto your leader while the ring is on the swivel, tie a clinch or improved clinch knot, then remove the ring from the swivel.  (This will save you from dropping and losing rings)
