The double haul is a cast that every angler wants to master, but some people struggle with the concept, the timing, or the motion. (Or, of course, any combination of the three.) It’s no coincidence that Pete Kutzer’s most-viewed video is on the double haul.
But I believe that everyone learns in a slightly different way, so it’s important to offer as many teaching tools as possible. To that end, here’s nine-year-old Dawson Herzer—son of John Herzer of Blackfoot River Outfitters—explaining his method for making the double haul.
What I like about this video is that it focuses on the down-up-down motion that’s very hard to describe in words.
