Video Pro Tips: How to Stop Wind Knots


In the past few months, we’ve posted a great new video series called “Getting Started in Fly Fishing,” from Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters in Columbus, Ohio. Now, they’ve launched a new series called “Q&A.” It’s a pretty self-explanatory title, methinks.

In episode #5, Flechsig answers the question “How do I stop wind knots?” As most of us know, wind ain’t the problem. Instead Flechsig focuses on “rod creep” and tailing loops. His demonstration will help you improve your cast and avoid tying your leader or tippet in knots.
