Improve your casting & improve your success


At The Outset

Prior to all casting and fishing sessions, there is a certain amount of time that we must set aside for assembling our tackle. So what I would like to do here, is try to make that time as short and efficient as possible by suggesting a few tips for both the beginner, and also the more accomplished angler. I will endeavour to explain these procedures in an easy to follow format, so that those of you who have never fly fished before can also benefit. To see more:

This charge only applies to round trips of 20 miles or more, and a minimum booking of a Full day session will need to be arranged if long distance travelling is a requirement.



During tuition sessions, the mechanics of each cast will be addressed. This will afford the angler a greater insight into each cast covered, and therefore a better understanding of the cast itself, which will in turn allow the angler to improve their fault finding and correctional skills. It is only then, that the angler will improve their casting techniques.





The Roll Cast


One of the most important casts to learn is the roll cast, and it is probably the most neglected cast of them all, it can not only get you out of all sorts of awkward situations, but if you intend to be a reasonable Spey caster (with either the single or double handed fly rods) then this is an essential cast to learn as it is the corner stone of all the Spey casts. So as a good overhead cast is a prerequisite to learning how to double haul correctly, then so a good roll cast is a prerequisite to learning, or improving, your spey casting techniques.


Why learn how to

Roll Cast ?

Here's Why !

To straighten out a line on the water prior to executing one of the other available casts.

when encountering obstacles behind, restricting you from overhead casting.

Its an integral part of your Spey Casts.

When fishing from a boat such as loch style fishing.

When fishing in a strong following wind, the Roll Cast is a much safer option and quite efficient.

To raise a sunk line to the surface prior to re-casting.

when retrieving a fly, and you have returned to the Roll Cast delivery point, it can be used to strike a last minute take.

The Roll Cast can also be used in conjunction with other casts, such as the overhead, to create an efficient combination cast for a variety of situations.

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons why it is in your best interests to be able to Roll Cast, as this cast affords you so many more options in a practical fishing situation.
