Default Re: Downstream bow technique

Hi to all,

Here is another trick using a kind of roll cast if you are below the fly and the currant is not too strong. Extend the rod tip high over you head so that you lift as much line off the water as you can. In the same motion, from this high stick position (elbow should be about shoulder high) throw a loop toward the fly in the air. The loop will travel toward the fly and as it unrolls it will pull the fly from the direction it came from. You need some slack in the line before the cast starts. If the distance is not too great this works quite well. It is a lot like making a roll cast into the air to pick up a sink tip line.

Frank
