I remember the first time I tried fly fishing. I caught more branches than fish.
I’m sure that I made every mistake that is covered in the following video.
Tom Rosenbauer, host of the Orvis Fly Fishing Podcasts, who was also named “Fly Rod & Reel” magazine’s 2011 Angler of the Year, presents three mistakes in the video, along with corrections.
The goal of the video is to help anglers place the fly exactly where they want it—and where it needs to be. If the fly isn’t near the fish, you’ll catch nothing.
It was sheer luck (and a guide who put me in the right spot) that I caught trout on my first trip.
The simple techniques from this video would have made casting much easier.
