Synopsis: Getting to the river, lake, estuary, or ocean is the easy part. The hard part is putting the fly in the right place so you have a chance to catch a fish. In this definitive guide, Tom Deck, head of casting instruction at the Orvis Fly-Fishing School in Manchester, Vermont, explains exactly how to cast. In a thorough, concise text, Deck teaches readers the same techniques that have drawn anglers to the Orvis school since 1968. Topics covered include: setting up the rod, grip and stance, the forearm and wrist in fly casting, applying power to the casting stroke, false casting, roll casting and roll-cast pickup, the single and double haul.After each lesson is a section filled with coaching tips, with suggestions for mental imagery, as well as a segment on troubleshooting, pointing out common problems and how to solve them.There are also valuable chapters on casting for specific kinds of fish and in different kinds of water. Without a doubt, Deck's book will be the reference on fly casting for years to come.
