Picking up your line, back casting and allowing the line to unfurl are all discussed in this free video series.
Hi! I’m Jim Dowd at zoaroutdoor.com. We are here for expertvillage.com and this session is all about fly casting and what you need to know to sling it out there. After you do your pick up and back cast, you pause for just a moment to allow the line to one unfurl behind you, and then you do parts 3 and 4, which is the forward cast and presentation. So you pause for the line to unfurl, forward cast and presentation. Unfurl, 3, 4. What I’m doing here is I wait until the line is almost straight, and then I smoothly accelerate and stop. Note where my thumbnail is: it’s at 45 degrees. Once the line starts to go past the rod tip, I just follow it down for the presentation. So I pause, forward stroke and follow it down. Forward stroke, stop and follow it down and try not to fall in the river in the process. So that’s parts 3 and 4; pause, forward stroke, stop and follow down.
