CASTING MATTERS: The Magic of the Curve Cast – Virtual Presentation

March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR LOGIN INFO

There are fishing situations where an intentionally curved fly line will catch more fish than a fly line cast landing in a straight line. Times when the ability to make a curved cast or mend can be the difference between success and an empty net. In this presentation, we’ll cover the skills necessary to make these casts as well as the situations where a fly angler might employ them.

We will cover multiple casting techniques used to make a Curve Cast and how to make an Aerial Mend Around a Target.  We will discuss both “How To” and “When” to use them.  The “When” is the key focus of this presentation, because these techniques are very effective for catching both Trout and Bass.  A Curved Cast presentation can be irresistible to black bass and we will discuss some of those situations.

We will cover the basic skills to allow a beginning caster to start fishing with these techniques and we will also discuss the subtle details that will help a more advanced caster to master these skills.

This presentation is appropriate for all casting skill levels.
