fly line
Yes, Sick.  I can throw that out there now because I've had quite the embarrassing week...... and to be honest, Sick just sounds about right. I just returned from a Casting Instructor Class with the Federation of Fly Fishers and had an eye opening experience. Not because of the challenge, although becoming a casting instructor is a major challenge, but because I was...
spey casting
Do you feel like your spey casting is perfect?  Do you feel like there is no room for improvement?  Yeah, me either.  If you're like me, you feel like you have a lot of room for improvement. I've been fly fishing my entire life but only recently picked up spey casting.  I have caught a lot of fish on the...
breaking your wrist
Over the years, I've taught a lot of people how to cast a single handed fly rod.  By far, the biggest issue I see is breaking your wrist.  Don't get me wrong, there are times when you will move your wrist, and I'll talk about that in a bit.

After I piled my crappy cast out there, I only needed to pick up and turn over...

With spey casting there are...

To have your own teacher and/or mentor? Yes and Yes! I’ve taught many people how to cast a single handed rod over the years and...
false casting
Do you remember the greatest fly fishing movie of all time?  Yeah, I'm sure you do - A River........, well you know the rest.  If not, watch the video clip below.  Remember that seen where Norman is false casting away - something about enticing a fish to rise. Well, that's not reality.  In realtiy or in steelhead fly fishing reality...

But, what about the switch rod that has started to pick up some fame? What use are they if you already have a single and/or longer two handed rod? Switch rods, as the name denotes...
