How to Fly Fish : How to Cast: Fly Fishing Tips for Beginners

So what I'm going to do is started out with just basically showing how you should cast the basic casting So first thing remember your right hand is your control hand excuse me your casting hand, left hand is your control hand

What we what to do we are going to do a back cast which I'm doing right now What I'm doing here if you can watch my wrist I'm not breaking my wrist Taking my rod the tip of my rod straight up and stopping and I'm heisting The purpose of this is to give the line proper time to make a loop So you can get the location where you want to put your fly and it keeps you from having issues such as wind knot, catching trees and limbs and that type of stuff

Now if you do go back to far when you are casting you are going to catch leaves, catch people ears, you are going to catch things you do not want to catch or then fish So make sure that you do not break your wrist, you keep your forearm and arm close to your chest and give it time to make its loop As you give it time to make its loop you can pull your line out from your control hand for distance Now when you get your bug in the water what you want to do is take that control hand feed that line that fly line into your right hand The reason for this is to secure the fish when it hits

Hopefully here in a little bit you see what I mean But, what we do here we got a streamer that we are floating in the water right now and basically you just want to have the basic drift with to drag Now as you would see as I cast and I put in the water the current is going to take the line You don't want that to happen So what we do is after you put your floating line into your right hand we do a move called mending what that does it lifts the floating line up over the current

So it assist in a natural drag and a natural drift of the fly that we are using in the water
