RIO Products is dabbling in the oft-attempted, never mastered realm of simplifying fly rigging rigging (re-tying knots) with the introduction of “Fly Clips” and “Twist Clips.” They actually sound pretty slick and we are eager to test them out. Until then, here’s the release from the company:
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.
