The fly rod casting stances and movements
- The stance
First, lay the pole at your feet and stand in an open area at least 20 meters away from both the front and the back. Act as if you were holding a brush in your dominant hand and stand with your dominant foot just before the non-dominant foot.
Keep your upper arm relaxed, and your elbows bent 90 degrees. Move your forearm, wrist, and hand horizontally forward, with the imaginary brush at about your waist. Imagine that the paint drips with paint and you try to paint the paint forward without spreading the paint outwards.
To do this, gently move your forearm forward and keep the brush aside. If you move your wrist too early, the paint will be sprayed everywhere. To keep the paint on the brush, you should minimize the handle of the brush when moving the arm forward. As your forearm moves forward, you move your wrist forward at the last second and try to hurl all the paint on the brush right in front of you.
As you move forward, move your body weight forward onto your forefoot. This entire stance is a flowing movement.
Now you reverse the process. Imagine that the brush is saturated with color again. Slowly bring your forearm back, keeping your upper arm relaxed and relaxed, and let your forearm guide the rest of your body. Slowly turn your shoulders back while holding the brush angle steady, so the paint does not splash if you move your forearm past your body, back the brush again and try to hit the paint directly behind you.
- The movement
After learning about the stance, next is to learn how to move either backward or forward and not spoil your stance. You can see that each time you move forward and backward, you take a short break at the extremes while allowing your forearm to swing in conjunction with a wrist grip to drop the line directly in front of you and directly behind you.
Practice this movement only with the body. If you feel you have mastered the movement, move your forearm from a horizontal position at waist level at an angle of about 45 degrees, like a thrower throwing the sidearm. Practice the movement again and move slowly until the movement is performed directly above the head.
Take frequent breaks, so your arm does not get tired, and your stance stays well.
These simple steps don’t require much of you. However, if you follow these guidelines, you have a cast that will give that dream catch. One thing that you have to remember is that, at the start, it can appear challenging but on a consecutive employment of this techniques and stances, nothings will seem challenging.
Enjoy your fly fishing.
