Video Pro Tips: 3 Ways to Improve your Double-Haul

A crisp double-haul will open more fly angling “doors,” allowing you to cast farther and more accurately, even in windy conditions. This comes in especially handy in saltwater and stillwater fishing, when you sometimes have to make long casts straight upwind.

(He has a whole video on his tape method.) In this video, he covers the three most important aspects of the double-haul casting stroke: timing, length, and path. The slow-motion shots are great for highlighting each part.
