Casting that Fly 1 – Basics
Master casting instructor, Lars Christian Bentsen, guides you all the way through the movie. Lars is a certified Master Instructor with the International Federation of Fly Fishers and is recognized internationally for his ability to teach fly casting.
This movie is about casting a single hand fly rod. He demonstrates how to put the tackle together: Rod, fly reel, backing, fly line and leader, before he shows you how easy it is to get started with your very first fly cast.
We take a look at roll casting, overhead casting, double hauling and how to shoot line.
But first and foremost, Lars Chr. Bentsen concentrates on the important basic elements of a good fly cast. Even though it is a movie for beginners, more experienced fly fishers will benefit from knowing the basics. Knowledge of the basics of fly casting makes it easier to correct your own faults.
A good fly cast is easy and elegant, and this movie shows how to achieve just that.
