  1. I almost got stabbed in the eye by a nymph on my first cast…Lucky I
    ducked, it stabbed a hole in my hat.

  2. I love it when people who are good at something but don’t know how to teach
    try to start off with lines like, “now notice that I’m NOT breaking my
    wrist.”… and he is clearly breaking his wrist in the video.

  3. I just got back into fly fishing too. I go fishing in my bellyboat with my
    cabelas waiders at lake george, mammoth lakes Ca. fly fishing is one of the
    best types of calm fishing. 😛

  4. hmm interesting that sounds painful im glad its never happened to me (its
    called a turtel neck or a high coloured shirt)

  5. flyfish1010, if this is of any help.. I’m left handed and I hold the fly
    rod in my left hand, and when I’m feeding the line I put it in my right
    hand. Normally I don’t strip the fish.. but when I do I will use my right
    hand. Hope thats some help to you.

  6. Then I’ll defer to your expertise. I’m planning on starting with the sport
    so I have no idea if this particular instruction is sound.

  7. the initial instruction is poor forget this film get someone that can cast
    and get on a lawn before attempting the water just tie a small piece of
    wool to the leader he has left a lot of info out

  8. that is wrong cast techniuqe , try out “henrik mortensen” one of the best
    fly fishers in the world, to be honest its waste of time watcing and listen
    to this guy
