Default Re: Having trouble feeling the load in the backcast

I wouldn't call it a beginner problem gents. I've had a fly rod in my hand a lot of years and sometimes I have a hard time with feeling that back cast load - which to me is the most important part of the cast because it's where I screw it up. It's timing and the use of a haul for me. It's also a function of how long it's been since I've cast a rod. I fished this past weekend for the first time in two months and my casts were all over the board. Some excellent, some tailing loops, some lousy. Practice is key if you can. I don't practice casting at all, and when I have long periods between fishing, my casting suffers tremendously.

Cheers,
Mike.
