Fly Fishing 101

How to Cast a Fly Rod

We've all been there at one point. How do I cast a fly rod? Well the answer is more simple than you may think. You don't need to perfect the shadow cast you saw in A River Runs Through It to catch fish. In this video, I will show you how to water load cast as well as roll cast your fly rod. With those two casts alone, you'll be catching fish in no time. From there you can master the ways of throwing laser tight loops in the comfort of your front yard. 

Choosing your first fly rod

Have you walked into a fly shop and been overwhelmed at all the different options in fly rods they have available? Or perhaps you life so far away from your "local" fly shop that making a trip down there is an all day excursion. Well I'm going to help you with that. In this video, I am going to cover what you need to know about choosing your first fly rod. Going over 3 common weight categories most fresh water anglers will own at some point in their fly fishing career, I talk about the basics of the capabilities of each rod and what fishing styles those rods provide. Although this video isn't an end all be all video for the buying process, I feel as though its a good starting point in helping you make the decision of which fly rod to begin with.
