This is really an amazing video and I've watched it several times. I didn't know one could cast a fly as far as the one guy did in that one cast. The video is so well done that it makes me wonder if others of similar quality have been put out by the same people that did this one. Anyone know?
I didn't see a drag knob on the right side of his reel. My guess is he was using a click n pawl reel and used the water tension as drag. Plus it looks pretty cool
