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 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 teachers readers the same techniques that have drawn anglers to the Orvis school since 1968. Topics covered include: setting up the road; grip and stance; the forearm and wrist in fly casting; applying power to the casting stroke; false casting; roll casting and roll-cast pickup; and 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 troublehsooting, 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 should be a reference on fly casting for years to come.
