The Fly Fishing Side Cast

In the side cast the rod travels back in the back cast parallel with the water and not far above the waist-line; the rod hand must be kept down low with the back of the hand toward the water. The line should be thrown backward traveling three or four feet above the surface of the stream, and the forward cast must be started quickly and timed correctly, since the line has only a little distance to fall before striking the water. The latter contingency should be avoided for several reasons, and of these not the least important is that you are liable to rise a trout when the flies strike behind you— a very disconcerting situation and one liable to result in a smash-up. I have seen this happen several times.

The side cast should always be used where overhanging branches invite a hang-up even when by taking chances and using the overhead cast you might gain greater distance. Under such conditions it is better to move up slowly and quietly, or, if necessary, get out of the stream and still-hunt your trout from the bank. A hang-up with the consequent maneuvers to get free always spoils sport in the immediate vicinity.
