Casting Flies into the Wind


Casting Flies into the Wind

The wind cast is decidedly not a pretty one, but in a strong wind, blowing directly toward the caster, it is the only method which will get out the flies any reasonable distance. Much accuracy under the conditions is not practicable, and any degree of delicacy in dropping the flies impossible and unnecessary, for the ruffled surface of the water hides any fault in this direction.

The back cast is made in the usual manneróthe wind cast is an overhead castóbut the forward cast is a strong downward chopping motion, moving the rod hand outward and downward, with a quick, strong snap of the wrist, and the rod should come down closer to the water than in the usual overhead cast. The wind cast will put out the line a fair fishing distance under very adverse conditions, but it is tiring and particularly hard on a light fly-rod. However, it is well worth knowing. It sometimes happens that trout will be found rising very freely on a windy, blustering day, even when they have shown no interest in the artificials under presumably more favorable conditions. Using this cast you will have fair success when the other fellow is climbing trees after his flies or sitting behind a fence waiting for the wind to go downóand the wind never goes down.
