Tippet Rings have been around for a while. They can be used fishing for trout or offshore (2 sizes). They do not pull your fly under. They greatly extend the life of a leader, and the speed with which you perform leader change-outs is the deal maker.
IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO / January 4, 2016
[dropcap]R[/dropcap]IO Products, industry leader in fly line, leader, and tippet manufacturing, brings anglers Tippet Rings to speed and ease terminal tackle rigging.
Tippet Rings are small, very strong, and lightweight and allow anglers to easily attach tippet to leader. A leader with a tippet ring turns over easily, and they are light enough to use with dry flies. Tapered leaders using this system last longer thanks to the leader not being shortened every time new tippet is attached. Tippet Rings also make adding a dropper easy and are a great addition to European Style Nymphing and indicator systems.
Tippet Rings are available in two sizes; 2mm “Trout” with a strength of 25lb, and 3mm “Steelhead” with a strength of 45lb. Tie the tippet ring to the leader with a clinch knot and then attach the tippet in the same manner for an easily rigged terminal tackle system. For more detailed rigging, watch the video here. Each pack contains 10 tippet rings, has a MSRP of $6.95, and can be purchased from local RIO dealers.
