Fly Casting: The Elements of Style

If you don’t know what an elbow-caster or a side-caster is, don’t worry — you’re not alone. We weren’t quite sure either, until master casting instructor Macauley Lord explained the difference.
This week Lord, whose revised edition of the L.L. Bean Fly-Casting Handbook comes out March 1, shares several insights into how elbow position influences our casts, and points out that breaking out of our muscle-memorized stroke can make all of us better casters.
