Default A Very Effective Cast;

Stack Mending;

This is an excellent way to attain depth with a streamer without resorting to the use of weight. The technique can be used with floating lines or sink tips. This is a way to get additional depth on a swing.

Here is a short description of the cast:

1. You are going to place a cast up and across stream.
2. With a high rod tip you are going to throw a series of small slack line roll casts at the point where your cast has landed. By doing this in quick succession to your cast landing you will effectively "Stack" line on top of your cast.

This stacked line cast will allow your streamers additional time to sink even more so than a 'Reach Cast' or a 'Slack line cast' followed by a quick upstream mend. Like everything else about fly casting the Stack Mend will take some practice to master. When you are faced with the time and place where making a deep swing presentation are the difference between reaching a fish or not, you'll be glad to have this in your bag of tricks.
