GRTU Fly Tying Video Series – Rio Getter by Matt Bennett
Tune in to see Matt Bennett, owner of Fly Geek Custom Flies, tie the Rio Getter.
Matt developed this fly with some assistance from Chris Johnson of Living Waters Fly Fishing. This fly was initially created to target picky Rio Grande Cichlids but has proven very effective on all sunfish, bass, and carp in bigger sizes. Brass eyes help get it down to the bottom where it belongs.
