    Hello. I want to know. How to start a cast with a bunch of trees and shrubs around you. What I’m asking is. If I pull up to a spot and I rig my gear up and walk to this spot. I’m on the bank and the river is only 25 foot wide and to deep to wade in and I have to start my cast from the bank with really close trees and bushes how do I get my line out from the start.
