The Tongariro Roll Cast

June 4, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

The gents over on Sexyloops.com sure know their casting, and especially spey casting. Herb Spannagl contributes this look at the Tongariro Roll Cast, going into great detail on the mechanics. Interestingly, he also credits New Zealand’s Tongariro with being the birthplace of “the shooting head, Red Setter wet fly, Globug, Tongariro bomb, and all the adaptations to upstream nymphing for spawning run rainbow trout.”
