This week Joan Wulff demonstrates several advanced fly casting techniques, including changing directions, curve casts, and casts for weighted nymphs. While the techniques are described as “advanced,” fly casters of all levels will appreciate her tips on dealing with the challenges of positioning and presentation on a trout stream.
Excerpt: “Right now I have deep water ahead of me, so a straight line cast would go over the rock, not in front of it. I’ll do a curve cast, starting with a horizontal stroke to the target area. Then, as the line is unrolling I’ll quickly move the rod sideward and pull it back in close to me in a curve, at the same time slipping line.”
