When we guide fly fishers we often need to help them with their cast. While most anglers welcome our advice they would rather spend the bulk of their time fishing, not working on their cast, so we have to improve their cast quickly.
We like to focus on the those elements that anglers can improve quickly. Giving a dissertation on the physics of casting doesn’t help much when our anglers are missing the target and fish are rising.
We’ve found a number of simple fixes that will improve any angler’s accuracy. All of these are “quick fixes” and may be implemented immediately. Beginners will certainly benefit from these tips and we frequently hear experienced anglers wonder aloud why no one ever pointed them out before.
In this video we focus on the most common casting mistakes made by fly fishers. None of these casting tips require any practice on your part, although practice never hurts!
