Expert techniques to improve your cast

Advanced Fly Fishing Video Lessons From Orvis - Advanced Casting Chapter 13

You know how to do the basic overhead cast and the roll cast. What’s beyond that? There are many ways to cast better in the wind, improve your roll cast, improve the delicacy of the way your fly lands, cast sinking lines, and set up your cast ahead of time to avoid drag. You also may want to try your hand at two-handed casts, which you can even do with an ordinary single-handed rod. Pete Kutzer, Orvis casting guru, shows us how to fine-tune and improve our casts for any situation.
