Randy, thanks for sharing that video, the slack line cast is one I leared a long time ago. The jump roll on the other hand is something I've worked on and get right sometimes, but most times not.

Wow, that guy is a phenomenal caster. I think if you gave me a thousand years to do nothing but fish and practice casting, I would still pale in comparison.

Excellent video. I think the 'Jump Roll he does at 2:19 and around it are actually a single spey and a spiral spey. 4:17 is a snake roll etc. Probably just different names for the same cast like snap-T and circle spey. A very useful video. Thanks for posting it.

Hi Everybody,

For those new to the reach cast the method shown is a very moderate reach cast. I am right handed and if I make a reach cast up stream to my left I will pass the rod from my right hand to my left hand and make a step to my left with my left foot. This gives me a lot of reach up stream. Just to be clear, I don't cast with my left had but make the exchange towards the end of the cast while the line is still in the air. If I am making a reach cast to my right I don't change hands with the rod but I still make a step to my right with my right foot and extend my right hand as far as I can reach.

Frank
