    Default Youtube casting tuition

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there are any particular videos on youtube that are recommended for good tips on casting?

    I can get the line out far enough to catch a few fish, but would like to work on a few things to get it smoother and more efficient. I know that lessons would be better and will be sorting some out, but in the mean time....

    There are some good tuition videos on the Orvis website.
    There’s an Australian guy called Peter Hayes has some good videos on YouTube with a bit of humour thrown in.
    Also Sexyloops.
    Joan Wulffs book, ‘New Flycasting Techniques’ is well worth a look at as well.

    I know most of us tend to chase distance, but presentation and accuracy will catch us more fish. Most of the time.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.

    If I was going to use one then it would be Paul Arden’s as mentioned above on sexyloops site.
    It is a whole series of short vids that progress you through key skills/understanding to improve your casting. Crucially it is filmed so you can see the casting hand and from different angles....

    For presentation - which is what I assume you mean - I found this guy's video quite helpful.

    He explains how to get drag free drifts on a clock position, which helps.

    But there are loads of others. So many.
    Trawling YouTube can be a good evenings work.

    I've found the most cost effective means of improving my casting has been to visit new fisheries and use a guide. For that you get a whole day of instruction plus a whole day of fishing in the places you're most likely to catch the fish.

    If you also mix up your fishing - lakes, rivers, trout, salmon - you get a wide range of casting experience which all seem to interact and give you more control and feel.

    And yeh, videos are free :-)
