Casting Essentials: Timing

Producer: Carl McNeil

Casting expert Carl McNeil describes why timing is so important in fly casting and how to identify problems with your cast. Excerpt: “At the beginning and end of each stroke is a pause just long enough to let the line fully straighten out in the air behind us before we start the stroke in the opposite direction.   That pause is directly proportional to the amount of line we have outside of the rod tip.”
