• “Fly Casting Is Not Magic”



“As fly tackle changed, casting instructors began teaching the fly-casting stroke by relating it to the hands on a clock face. Thus was born a teaching concept that persists today.

”Most books, magazine articles, and videos teach that certain casting motions should be performed with reference to positions on a clock face. We believe this is a major reason why so many fly fishers are not better casters.

”We believe that if you can eliminate the casting stroke positions as related to a clock face, you can become a better caster.”
