Re: Roll cast question
As Ken mentioned sometimes I like to use a roll cast to pick up the fly line. You start the same motion as the regular roll cast but you aim it higher and the line will pick up off the water and roll over into a straight line in the air. You need to have the fly moving when you begin the cast and you have to aim the cast higher. I used this a lot when fishing a short integrated sink tip. You can't pick up as much line and you have to cast from the correct side to accommodate any wind.
