Casting Practice, Better Now Than on The Water When It Counts The Most

The past couple times I have been out to fish I have noticed my casting is not what it should be. So, I decided over the weekend to start practicing more than usual and get myself back into the groove.

I contacted Airflo Lines and had them send me some new Ridgeline and Sixth Sense. I started casting on Monday, for about 30 minutes a day, with the Ridge Line and the Sage 5 wt just to get my timing back a little. The line casts great as does the rod and as I am prone to say the rod and the line both cast better than I do…..especially watching my casting lately.

I came across this video the other day on Marshall’s site www.midcurrent.com and followed the link. It is worth watching and has some info that works pretty well. Anyway I hope you enjoy and I hope the video works too.

Stay tuned for a warm water update later in the week as we go chase some stripe and some bass.


  1. Video works and it is very helpful too I find it hard to describe to someone how you cast a fly rod sometimes because I have just gotten so used to doing it that it is just something I know by feel now.

  2. Great video, David. This is certainly the time of year to get our casts and casting arms back in shape!
