Bruce Makes The Tough Shot

A better fly cast for windy days.

You know that feeling you get when you watch a school of bonefish swim away while you squirm and wrench your arm out of socket trying to get your fly out of your back? Yeah, me too. Casting with a strong wind off your casting shoulder is the toughest shot in fly fishing. Well, our buddy Bruce Chard is back to show you how to take that shot like a hero.

It’s called the Belgian cast and it can save your day so watch the video and learn.

One thought on “The Belgian Cast

  1. Always called that the “awful oval” cast but it does work well in wind coming into your casting arm. So does the “reverse cast” which looks like you’re casting backwards and letting your back-cast lay out towards the fish (which keeps the line on the downwind side of your body).
