Ever find yourself making the same poor presentation over, and over again?

Or maybe it’s not that the cast is poor, but you are trying to work different areas of a run and your fly keeps landing near the same spot each time. Don’t drive yourself crazy, or give up on fishing the run. Getting frustrated is only going to lead to more mistakes. Sometimes the biggest gains are made with small adjustments, and in this case, there is a simple, effective way to fix this issue.

If you get into a situation where you keep making the same cast without intending to, all you need to do is turn your hips towards your intended target. This will naturally turn your head and shoulders toward your target as well, making it much easier to execute a more consistently accurate cast.

  1. Guys, as a relatively new fly fisherman, I cannot tell you how helpful and enjoyable your articles are on both fishing and fly tying. You guys always seem to hit the topics that are meaningful. So a big thank you from Cleveland Ohio.
