The more I learn about fly casting, the more I realize how much I don't know. Some casting instructions I've read run contradictory to some aspects in Joan's teaching (like the use of the wrist), but who am I to say? I mean, who can really argue with Joan's technique or the results?
So I thought I'd share this short video with you by Joan (the First Lady of fly fishing) where she discusses the basics of the normal fly cast. I'm betting that every one of us can take something useful from it to improve our own casting. I know I sure can!!
