Video: How to Cast a Fly Rod, the Basics


The most popular casting video that Pete Kutzer has ever done is “The Basic Fly Cast” (below), which has been viewed almost 1.2 million times. But I am a big believer that people learn in many different ways, and a lesson that resonates for one person may not work for another. So I am always looking for other teaching methods and descriptions that offer a different take.

Former Orvis Fishing Manager Cinda Howard, who now runs Fly Fish Arizona and Beyond, has produced a great video on fly casting, in which she discusses the basics–from the grip to the shape of the loop–in simple, easy-to-understand terms. I particularly like her “answering the phone” analogy for the backcast. So check it out, and share it with any new anglers or those who want to start.
