    Default Fly Casting Advice

    Excellent advice from the Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers:

    After recently watching a beginner struggle terribly to cast, I thought this might be useful.

    check out Winston Fly rods -----> Joan Wulff flycasting series videos ----- very detailed and shows a lot of little things that will help beginners.
    -------> "Go ahead --- leave me on the dock --- see if I care" <-------

    I like to tell people that I fished with Joan Wulff. I stopped by the Orvis store in Manchester Vermont years ago, and out back they have a small pond with two casting platforms. I was casting a 4Pc 5wt which I later bought, and on the platform to my right was Ms Wulff. She appeared to be giving a fly-casting lesson or demonstration to a fellow.

    Thanks for sharing educational vids along with brief history report. The sport lives because of those who give.
    Pass the "Sportsman Baton" on before you're gone, promote values for others to hunt and fish upon.

    I'm very familiar with Lefty. I've watched his videos, read his books, and met him at a FF show a few years ago.

    One of the best tips I heard is this...imagine a wall in front of you, and one behind you, with you in the middle with a paint brush full of paint.The goal is to flip the paint straight ahead onto the wall in front and in back of you.This is how your wrist should feel when you make a good fly cast.

    I'm way ahead of you -- again.
