Rollin’ Rollin’ Roll casting on the river..   2 comments

Hey folks!

I’ve been super busy running my shorthairs after game birds.  I did, however find the time last week to put together a video dealing with the roll cast.  The roll cast is a vital cast to master, because it forms a solid base of which to perfect other casts (reach, tuck casts).

I would guess that when nymphing I probably roll cast eighty percent of the time.  It’s a great idea to be able to “spot cast” with a roll cast when nymphing to not only get onto fish accurately, but to also cut down on the amount of wind knots from casting a weighted nymph rig. When fishing dries, dry drops, and streamers, I will still use it to set up other casts and to minize fly-rod flash that spooks fish.  It’s just a great tool.

At the end of the swing stage in a typical nymph drift, we always put in a blind or position set.  If done correctly this actually leads perfectly into the first phase of the roll cast.  All this stuff meshes together to make you one fly fishing machine.
