Does Anyone Fly Fish With Tippet Rings?
By Joe Cermele
I stumbled upon this video over at the "Tube." this morning. It's weird, because there are a lot of Barbies modeling flyfishing accessories, but at the core it's about rigging a tippet ring. The narrator points out that many people don't know tippet rings exist. Maybe I'm blind, but I can't recall ever bumping into a pack at the fly shop, so I guess I'm one of those people. I will admit that when steelhead or pike fishing, I've got no problem incorporating a micro barrel swivel into my leader for extra strength, but these tippet rings are so tiny they can be used to fish dry flies. Anyone out there use these things? If so, do you think they have an advantage?
