Fly Casting REV Challenge: #3
Common Casting Mistakes vs. Good Casting Form
This week let’s look at common faults in fly casting, particularly the motion of the cast itself.
There’s a basic principle here. You can’t get a good cast from a poor casting stroke, nor vice versa. Good movement produces good casting. So, if there’s a problem with your cast, there’s a problem with the movement that produced it.
Here’s a demonstration of some common casting mistakes that produce inefficient casts and then a demonstration of effective casting form.
Tune in next week for Episode 4 where we discuss the bio-mechanics of how to produce good casting form, and therefore effective casts.
