Recently, our friends at Scientific Anglers have been producing an great series of casting-instruction videos hosted by two modern masters: Bruce Richards and Jeff Wagner. Richards was the longtime head fly-line designer for Scientific Anglers and is responsible for some of the major developments in fly-line technology over the past three decades. Wagner is an award-winning competition caster, a field editor for Fly Fusion, and he’s been a player in the outdoors industry for many years. (His wife, Kathleen, is also a decorated tournament caster. #5050onthewater)
In this video, Richards describes what he believes are the three most common casting errors: too much wrist, “creep,” and misapplication of power. What’s cool is that he explains the problem and then immediately shows you how to fix it.
