Increase Your Fly Fishing Cast Repertoire with the Double Haul

Add distance to your fly fishing cast by learning the double haul technique from the Orvis fly fishing school.

After you get the basic cast down for fly fishing you are going to want to learn how to add distance to your fly fishing cast so that you can reach across those rivers to those more inaccessible spots where the big trout lurk. This is where the fly fishing enthusiast learns the double haul technique.

Orvis provides another great instructional video with Peter Kutzer that breaks the double haul in easy to learn steps.

The double haul is how you can add tremendous distance to your cast by using physics in your favor.

I used to shut down my river fly fishing when it got windy, but learning the double haul will allow you to keep those casts long, reduce wear and strain on your arm, and increase accuracy. It really is not as difficult as it may seem, and by getting out and practicing you will be well set to add distance to your fly fishing cast in no time.

Add the double haul to your skills this winter and it will pay off this spring and summer.
