Launched Fly Fishing: The Basics

I launched in the rotation, the weight of the bait pulls the fishing line from the spool. In fly fishing, the weight of the line leads to the fly to the fish. In fly fishing, you must learn to use the cane to throw the weight of the fly line. You can do this quickly with the following five basic principles of fly fishing:

– The fishing line fly (and fly) go in the direction you point the rod tip during launch.
– A good fly fishing is not related to the force, is related to coordination. You need to practice synchronizing launched to become a good pitcher. How much practice? At least 15 minutes a day to become a good pitcher in a month.
– A proper movement and detention of cane are essential for good fly fishing. The pitcher load energy in the rod during the movement launched. Reed releases energy in the line of fly casting. The pitcher load some energy (a short movement, low energy) at the top of the cane for short released; loads a lot of energy (a short and powerful movement as defined by eNingbo) in the middle and bottom of the cane for thrown long.

– The arches released (the arch cane makes in the air during casting) in fishing fly are small to large for long thrown and thrown short.
– Stop cane released after movement is critical to the formation of the loop released, and allows download cane, thus releasing the fishing line.

Fly fishermen rarely need to throw more than 50 feet, but become an effective pitcher in fly fishing long distance can improve all released. You must learn to pitch in short (30 feet), and then practice at increasing distances.

You can not learn fly casting in a book. You have to do it. The more you practice, the better. Practice on grass or in a pool. Throwing while fly fishing is not practical. The practice allows you to focus on the fundamentals of released without distractions.

First steps

The best way to learn fly fishing is an experienced instructor. Ask a friend or relative, or find instructors in schools or fly fishing shops fly fishing clubs. If one is not available, bring your balanced rod, fishing line and reel in your backyard. You will need at least 120 feet (60 meters in each direction) lawn without obstructions.

Mark your fly fishing line with an indelible marker 30 feet. The marker will indicate the amount of line you have when launched. Also place caps or some other object on the lawn at 30 and 60 feet away from where it will stop. The markers will help you develop a sense of distance it is critical in precision thrown fly fishing.


Hold the cane by hand casting and place your thumb on top of the handle of the cane. When learning the released, hold the handle of the cane under and in line with the wrist and forearm. Thus, the rod will remain parallel during casting. If the rod leaves the parallel during launch, the tip moves a lot, and the line continues to the tip, wandering and spoiling casting. Stand on the grass with feet slightly apart. Take the fishing line from the reel. Tie a guide 9 feet at the end of the line with a knot tube and tie a small piece of thread at the end of the tip of the fly. Pull out about 20 meters fishing line reel and leave the field to the right of where you stand (left if left-handed). Make sure the fly line is well placed on the pitch and not in S curves or if not, will not pitch well.

Using a released side horizontal, move the rod tip forward from right to left (from left to right if left handed), and see that the line forms a loop and roll to the left and then settles in grass.

Using the arm and wrist movement together (how would throw a Frisbee back), throw the line back and forth repeatedly in thrown back and forth. The formation of loops is the intention of its launched – between the loops tighter, better casting.

As you move the rod back and forth keep your wrist firm and stop abruptly cane after each movement. Stop cane allows the line form a loop at the tip of the cane. It also allows the rod tip discharge energy in the line efficiently. Energy cane is transmitted to the line. Cane must stop both the front and rear launched to become a good pitcher fly fishing.

I pointing launched

For short released, point to about 4 feet above the water (or lawn). As his cast become longer, taller point to allow the line and fly more time to reach the target. Learning to aim accurately is a characteristic of experts launched fly fishing. You must spend considerable time practicing to aim and attack targets on the lawn.

Following in the footsteps of practice, you should be able to teach himself how to cast the line, the guide and fly from 15 to 30 feet in the first hour of practice. You can now present a fly to a perch or pan fish in a pond or fish in a stream or ocean.

Here are some useful tips in practice launch or when fly fishing:
-. Wear safety glasses (polarized sunglasses) to prevent eye injuries
– Force yourself to achieve greater (measurably) distance in the released of the line only after reaching some competition in the shorter distances – 15 meters, then 20, then 30 and so on.
– Watch your released and critíquelo.
