How and where to fish
It only takes half a day of introductory lessons to make a proper cast!
Step 3: The Backcast. The line follows the rod tip’s movement (the last eye of the rod). When the movement of the forearm stops, the fly line continues its trajectory and stretches out exactly in the same direction as the outer curve of the rod (direction of the rod tip). In order to obtain a proper loop in the line, you must pause for a moment at the end of your backcast and allow the line to unfold completely until you regain tension of the line.
Step 4: The Forward Cast. The tip of the rod is pointing backwards at this point. To cast out the fly line, the forearm now must accelerate forward and come to a complete stop. It is the position of the rod tip at the end of the backcast and its movement during the forward cast that will determine the direction of the fly line. Finally, after the line unfolds in front of you in the form of a loop, the rod tip is gradually lowered just off the surface of the water. The leader and the fly should follow and fall softly to the surface.
