The best trout are often in places where other anglers don’t even attempt to make a cast. In this video, Dave Jensen shows you how to cast in heavy brush, using the steeple cast and also a modification of this useful fly cast. The steeple cast does not need to be a major effort, with your arm way up over your head. Watch how easy and relaxed it can be. And Dave also shows you how to keep your back cast very high by maintaining a fixed arm at a high horizontal angle, then using mostly your wrist (Heaven forbid!).
