fly fishing part 4

the cast is one of the most iconic and important parts of fly fishing. the rod and line work in concert and allow the fisherman to deliver a virtually weightless object, the fly, accurately and at a distance to their quarry.

it is all about technique and timing. when done well the line forms compressed loops and requires very little effort.

*i got pretty sick yesterday so i'm going to finish this theme over the weekend.

Great shot. I'm no fisherman but your theme has brought a desire to change that.

@wondermade. the kids fish all the time in the warmer months, but almost always with spin rods. my son started showing interest in learning to cast a fly rod the middle of last summer. he got his own fly tying setup last winter and was tying flies. he wanted to catch a fish on one of his own so that was driving him.

kids and women seem to pick up casting really quickly in my experience.

That's an awesome shot! I love the low contrast in black and white, it looked like you were drawing something with a wand.

Nicely done. I've never tried to catch a line like this in a photo, but I imagine it took a few shots to get it right. Great theme.

I get a lot of possitive comments just for having made so many comments, but I always take them with a grain of salt, because MY goal is not to make the most comments, but instead to try and see every single picture every single day-and I always know that I've missed greatness. This picture is 100% proof of that. I am so glad @fofe clamebuted this shot. It is absolutely fantastical. I love everything about it. the light, the line, the shirt...everything. Latefaved.
