Using the Left Hand to Cast Flies


Using the Left Hand to Cast Flies Learning to use the left hand in the above manner when casting is one of the most difficult things in fly-casting, particularly if you have become accustomed to one-handed casting, but it is certainly worth the trouble of acquiring it; in fact, its advantages and applications in various directions both in casting and fishing the flies are so numerous that they can merely be suggested at this point. Particular reference is made elsewhere to certain situations wherein the two-handed fly-caster has every advantage over the caster whose education has not progressed thus far. In the writer's opinion and, it may safely be said, in the opinion of every man who has done much fly-fishing, the one thing above all others is to learn how to handle the line with your left hand.

Following the above suggestions should certainly result in adding a number of feet to your average casting without any determined effort to gain distance. In fact the gaining of distance by mere muscle should be studiously avoided if for no other reason than that very long casting is usually very poor fishing, except, of course, where reaching out is absolutely necessary on account of natural conditions. The chronic distance caster generally overcasts his water, neglecting good water nearby for the sake of seeing his flies come down far-off. There is a certain satisfaction in this without doubt, but it is not good fly-fishing. Strenuous effort is not at all necessary for reasonable distance fishing casts; tournament casting is another thing. If you can succeed in getting the true science of casting down to a fine point, the harmonious action of wrist, rod, and line, everything done just right and at just the right time, it will surprise you how easily the flies may be sent for comparatively long distances. Accuracy is the thing to strive for.
