Re: Fly fishing for bigginers - roll cast
I agree, the roll cast is an extremely effective method of casting. As mentioned, friction is a large part of the roll cast. If you would like to add friction to fly set-up to make roll casting easier, try changing your leader. Myself along with a few others on this forum hand craft furled leaders. Whether you use one of ours, some one else’s or make one yourself, you will see a large improvement in your roll casting. Furled leaders are not for everyone, but there is no question that they do indeed help load the rod during a roll cast.
