Default Interesting Casting Demos

I spotted this on another site and thought it was pretty cool. Just click on the cast, then run your cursor over the numbers as fast or slow as you like.

Good one Larry. That looks like it would be good for a lot of other casting techniques too.

Good photography, and a great website format for teaching. I can see that working well for fly and knot tying instruction as well.

That was cool, especially when running the cursor through the numbers fast.

Great link, thanks.

Can someone explain the difference between "Static" and "Dynamic" roll casts? I'm not really sure I see the difference in the 2 photo series.

Thanks.

Jamie

A "static roll" cast is one where the line is completely still before starting the roll cast forward (usually forward).

A "dynamic" roll cast is one where the line is still moving in a rearward (usually) direction when the forward cast is begun. Generally speaking, this is easier to do because you can throw a bigger loop behind you with less line on the water in front of you. However, if there are a lot of bushes behind you, this is not possible and a static cast is indicated.

Cheers,
Jim
