This One Fly Casting Tip Will Vastly Improve Your Technique

This one fly casting tip is as simple as it gets, but it will immediately improve your technique with not even having to think about it.

Trout Unlimited will give you this one fly casting tip and it is a game changer.

I wish I had known it 20 years ago.

That’s as simple a fly casting tip as you will find, but it really takes a lot of potentially confusing descriptions and bundles it into one easy to remember technique. Keep the thumb in your peripheral vision and you will be casting the fly rod in its correct arc every time without cocking the wrist. Brilliant.

This tip was from a western fly fishing guide and this is why I love booking in with a guide whenever I fish a new area. On top of putting me on the best fishing areas, I also pick up some gratis lessons and techniques that improve my fishing skills, each and every time.

Try out this tip next time you are out and see how it can improve your fly casting technique; a great way to do it without thinking about each and every cast.
