This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how to bend your fly line around a corner. This cast, known as a Positive Curve Cast, or a Shepherd's Crook Cast, is a great cast to have in your repertoire as it enables you cast to the side of a weed bed, and bend your fly line round to land in front of a fish (and not over the top of the weed bed) - just as it is shown in this video.
RIO's Fly Fishing Tips series are short, less-than-a-minute videos, each bought to you by a RIO employee or ambassador and showing a single fly fishing tip to help you become a better fly fisher. The series includes freshwater, saltwater and Spey topics, and a mix of casting, fishing and gear tips - some basic, some technical, and everything in between.
Each new tip is released on RIO's Facebook and Instagram pages every Friday, so if you like the sound of this series and want to get these tips quickly, be sure to follow RIO on these platforms.
