I was stringing up my rod one day along the stream, getting ready to go fishing while talking to a friend who was there. As I was pulling my line through the guides they asked me about how I was doing it, so I showed them. It was then that I realized that maybe not everyone strings up a fly rod that way.
Below is a video in which Texas fly fishing guide Alvin Dedeaux demonstrates a great way to string up a fly rod. Simple & easy, but you might never have thought of it before, so I thought I'd share it with you.
Got any tips like this one? Let me know & if it's a good one I'll share it with everybody here on "The Pliant Rod" so we all can benefit from your knowledge. Just contact me with your ideas, short cuts, & tips. I'd love to hear them!!
