Earlier this month we ran a post with a short video clip of Tim Rajeff telling you how to cope with wind coming from the four different directions on the flats.
Today, Tim’s back to cover the fundamentals of casting in the wind. What are the fundamentals? Here’s Tim’s outline.
- A small loop cuts through the wind better than a wide loop. Generate a tight loop by making sure your rod tip tracks in a straight line.
- There’s no substitute for high line speed. A good double haul is key – that means the length of the haul matches the length of the casting stroke, and the power in the double haul is applied at the end.
But don’t take our word for it – here’s Tim!
