News & Tips: Loop Shapes for Fly Casting: Saltwater Fishing Tip...

Practice fly fishing casting technique, loop shape.  Stand in the yard and aerialize 40 feet of line.  Using the double haul, experiment with how a harder or longer haul effects loop shape.  The double haul is not only effective for line speed but can also significantly decrease loop shape.  Gain control of your cast by continually practicing and learning how to throw large loops and small loops.  Use a firm stop on the forward cast and a sharp haul to achieve the smallest possible loops.  Once perfected, apply this to your long casts.
