Pick Up Your Fly Line and Recast Quietly: Video

2 comments / Posted on / by


The ability to pick your fly line up off the water quietly can be the difference between success and failure.

In freshwater or salt making a loud pickup to recast can spook fish you might have otherwise caught. Of course we would all like to catch our fish with just one cast but that’s not often the case, so a quiet pick up is a great skill to have.

Part of the process is simply controlling your excitement but there is some technique to it as well. Luckily we have my buddy Bruce Chard to help with that.

Watch this video where Bruce Chard explains how to pick up and recast quietly.

  1. Hello Louis,
    At risk of being considered pretentious, this tip (as many) is near evidence!
    There’s another,,Perhaps you know: when the Line is on the water, before beginning the back cast, shake two or three times the rod, up and down. The line leave gently the water at some points and then, silently.
    Cheers and happy new year.
