FEATHER THAT FI­NAL CAST

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice -

In ad­di­tion to a slightly shorter leader, feath­er­ing your fly line (gen­tly grip­ping it) as the fi­nal cast con­cludes of­ten sees the leader kick over pos­i­tively due to in­creased re­sis­tance. This ploy is all about tim­ing and once you mas­ter it, it’s a great method for straight­en­ing a leader, not only where the air is thick, but when tack­ling a head­wind too! It’s vi­tal to prac­tise this out­side of ac­tual fish­ing though, as bad tim­ing now will hin­der rather than help you.
