Video: 2 Fly-Casting Tips to Up Your Game

Here’s another good video in the ongoing series on fly casting from Brain Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters in Columbus, Ohio. Here, he offer two foundational tips: 1. always start and end the cast with your rod tip low; and 2. the timing of the cast is a simple 4/4 beat. But if you watch the whole video, you’ll learn a lot more than that, from how much to break your wrist to working the double haul. Once you’ve watched the video, grab your rod and head out on the lawn on a local water to try to put these principles into action. (Below is the Jim Green film that Flechsig refers to in the video.)
