LEARN THE ROLL CAST

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice -

Be­cause our line is ush­ered to­wards us us­ing a raised rod (di­a­gram 4), it makes per­fect sense to roll the line out, ei­ther back onto the wa­ter or into an over­head cast. When fac­ing up­stream, sim­ply let the line drift past you to form a D-loop be­fore tap­ping the rod for­ward as nor­mal. If you’re an­gled down­stream then the cur­rent’s pull won’t nec­es­sar­ily allow a D-loop to form. This is best done now by point­ing your rod be­hind you, be­fore bring­ing hand, arm and rod into the usual for­ward de­liv­ery po­si­tion.

Track­ing flies back to­wards you by rais­ing rod nat­u­rally forms a D-loop ready for roll cast­ing.
