The Compact, Practical Handbook That Will Add Ten Feet--Or More--To Your Cast
All fly fishermen want to have the ability to reach out an extra five or ten feet with their line. The trout, tarpon, permit, or bass always seem at least that distance from one’s best cast, and there is no adequate solution other than learning to cast farther. Lefty Kreh’s Longer Fly Casting holds the key for any angler—beginner to near-expert—to refine his or her fly-casting technique for reliable accuracy over greater distances.
Through his revised text, and with numerous illustrations, Lefty analyzes the basic forward cast, explaining its different parts and dynamics, and builds on that to fully illustrate the double haul—the essential technique for targeting fish at your arm’s maximum range. Lefty also explains how to use a shooting head and how to overcome many common obstacles, including wind, trees, casting from boats, and more. Such skill minimizes the chance of scaring fish with too close an approach and also enables the angler to cover unwadable water, often resulting in much improved success.
