Yesterday afternoon, Jim Hewes joined me for some casting tuition. With some fishing already under his belt, we were able to work on understanding and controlling loop size. It's always really interesting to examine the huge effect body angle has on the success of casts. Tiny changes in stance can make huge changes in the cast.
There had been a few fish rising whilst we had been roll casting in the river, so Jim made a few casts at the end of the session with an emerger pattern. He made contact in just a few casts with a pretty wild brown trout. Well done Jim - A fitting end indeed!
