Lefty Kreh Demonstrates the Slack-Leader Cast

June 16, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

When Lefty Kreh’s new magnum opus on fly casting arrived at the office late last fall, I could hardly believe what came out of the box. Fly Casting With Lefty Kreh was 456 pages, 1,110 color photos, and covered just about every cast you can imagine. It’s the most encyclopedic coverage of fly casting techniques in print.
This week on MidCurrent Lefty shows how to deliver a slack-leader cast, step-by-step. A more subtle but in some ways simpler version of a stack cast, it’s one of Lefty’s favorite ways to start drag-free presentations without sacrificing accuracy.
