Stream side strategies: three ways of improving your fly line control - Norman Crisp AKA The Wiz gives you sound advice
|Failing to bring the line from the line hand to the rod hand.
Lack of control occurs when the line hand does not bring the line over to the rod hand at the end of the cast. We end with the line hand up to two feet away from the rod. When a fish strikes all that extra slack line has to be "moved" before you establish contact with the fish and set the hook. How can you correct this problem? Simple. At the completion of the cast remember to bring the line over to the rod hand as the fly is landing on the water and tuck the line between the index finger and the thumb of your rod hand.
