Default Re: Hello, Im new

I'm still fairly new to flyfishing myself, so I can relate. One great tip I got from reading was to false cast continuously. Just simply make a backcast, let it unfurl completely (very, very important!), then make a forward cast. When it unfurls, make another back cast.

The idea is to get a continuous run of smooth strokes with tight loops. It builds rythm and timing. Excessive false casting when fishing is really a flaw, but it's a great way to practice.
