After getting all your gear and you have mastered learning how to tie a fly, it's time to move onto the next step learning how to cast which can be a challenging one.
Like any skill, becoming a true master of casting can take a long time to develop, in some cases it takes years. However, you aren’t alone because most anglers often make the same mistakes, and that means your casting flaws have probably already been tackled by someone before.
JP Hewitt from The Gadget Company says the best way to hone your skills is grab a pull find some empty field or park.
“Just get out and practice everybody has grass yards everyone has little parks around them just cast,” said, JP Hewitt Owner of The Gadget Company.
Along with casting, don’t over-stress yourself make it easy and try to work on one technique at a time.
“Less is more finding one thing and working on that is way better than trying to do it better all at once,” said Hewitt.
