CASTING MATTERS: Making the Investment


A variation of this article originally appeared in the December 2023 edition of the FFI Texas Council Newsletter.

Much of what happens on the river is beyond our control as anglers—the wind, the weather, the flows, the fish. One thing we can control is equipment, often investing in the latest and greatest our money can buy. But many ignore the one investment likely improve their fly-fishing game the most. How do I know that? Well, out on the water these days I see a lot of thousand-dollar fly rods being subjected to hundred-dollar casts. I also see lots of anglers with decent casts that could be way more effective with a few tweaks. But I’m not here to disparage, I’m here to help. It’s the reason I became a casting instructor in the first place.
