  1. good stuff this parallels my latest read, Master the Cast. In it they refer to this as an open stance for longer casting, one full step back and that foot turned out, helping to accelerating through a longer arch, needed for that long cast. That’s what I’m after. Staying tuned in glad your back up and running

  6. Notice how the boat rocks as the caster shifts weight from one foot to the other, sending vibrations/waves outward. If the fly is presented to the quarry before it senses the vibrations, no worries. However, with spooky fish (bones, carp, etc.), its “game over” once they feel the pressure change.
    I think Bruce’s casting advice is excellent..
    Just don’t rock the boat…
