Video Tuesday Tip: How to Make a Backcast Presentation


It’s been quite a while since we had a new casting-instruction video from Pete Kutzer of the Orvis Fly Fishing Schools, but he and I got out on the lawn last week and shot a few quick-and-dirty lessons that we’ll be bringing to you in the coming weeks. Here, Pete shows you the best way to lay down a presentation at the end of a backcast.

This is a very useful technique for when the wind is blowing into your casting shoulder, when you’re casting from a boat, or when you need to watch your forward cast to thread it between some tree limbs or other obstacles. As you learn here, the keys are to point your shoulder where you want to go and make sure you drop your rod tip as the fly falls to the water.
