To Work On Your Casting | Excuse to Fish #770

Updated: Apr 23



Fly anglers know that any time working on your casting skills is time well spent, but even gear fishermen can always up their game.


Skip casts, distance, accuracy, presentation––everything counts.


When the fishing is tough these little details can affect the number of fish you catch. If your lure lands six inches away from the sunken log instead of three inches, you might not catch that fish in tough conditions.


Fish don't want to move if they don't have to––it's up to you to make it easy.


The anglers who always seem to make the perfect cast, or get their lures out of a tree with the flick of their wrist know that practice makes perfect.


How do you think they got that good in the first place?


With a lot of terrible casts.



Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.


No excuses.
