Book Description

  • Improved techniques for backcasts, forward casts, roll casts, and distance
  • Solutions for difficult casting situations

    Mastering the art of casting is the challenge for fly fishers who want to fully enjoy the sport in all kinds of conditions. But the rigid rules that most anglers stick to often ensure inefficient results. Ed Jaworowski's approach to casting is the result of over twenty years of research and innovation. Based on four principles that are applicable to every cast, Ed reveals his methods for achieving accurate and effortless casting. With 380 stop-action photographs for visual support, this book provides detailed directions explaining how to cast longer while using less force, how to make a right-angle hook, how to avoid tailing loops, and how to cast in the wind.
