Video: How to Make Accurate Casts at Longer Distances


Here’s the latest video in our series featuring Pete Kutzer of the Orvis Fly Fishing Schools, in which he offers some important tips for maintaining accuracy at longer distances. When you’re casting to a rising trout that’s barely in range, you want to ensure that the long cast you make delivers the fly in the right spot. Otherwise, you might spook the fish, or it might never see your fly.

Here, Pete discusses proper tracking, which ensures that the energy of the cast is focused in a straight line, as well as good timing, which helps you maintain a tight loop.

  1. Pete, good basics for longer accurate casts. Do you shoot line on your final forward cast in windy conditions? Thanks,
    Eric
