Fly casting is viewed by many as more than just an enjoyable past-time. For them, it is a precise science. This is the view taken by this practical and informative volume which presents a problem-solving approach to making poor fly casters good, and good fly casters great! "The Orvis Guide to Better Fly Casting" explains the most fundamental aspects of the mechanics of fly casting, the five so-called "rod variables" - tilt, stroke length, bend, angle of rotation, and speed - and then describes how subtle changes in these affect the way a fly rod moves. It then shows how these fundamentals can be used to control rod, line, leader, and fly, to achieve perfect presentation. This is the ultimate volume to help both novices and experienced fly casters improve their casting technique to get their best ever results.
