    Lately, it's been a Snap-T with a big dry, on my switch rod.........

    Snake rolls on the spey and super accurate casts with the 3 weight in a tiny creek that would leave you snagged if your were inches off in either direction.

    One of my "best" casts was figuring out this puzzle and making a difficult cast on the first try. Give a try at solving it before looking at the answer.

    Solve the puzzle

    My best or at least most accurate cast was when I was hiking with my buddy on the Norwegian mountains.

    I was trying to figure out what fly to put on and getting ready to start the days fishing when I noticed my friend kneeling by our tent entrance his butt crack shining. I didn't have a fly on my leader so I decided to teach him a lesson.

    After that he wore a belt on his pants.

    Any cast that I feel happy with. Doesn't matter if I don't catch a fish. I am more depressed when I cast badly and catch fish than the other way around.

    I've been fooling around with various single-hand spey casts for a few years now, so my 'favorite' cast is kind of work in progress. Right now I'm finding a lot of uses for either a 'snap-T' cast or a 'snake roll' cast. If I had to pick just one, I guess right now I'd pick the Snake roll, just because it's a lot of fun once you figure it out, allows you to change direction easily, doesn't need any room for a backcast, and finally you can cast either small dries or heavy double-nymph weighted rigs without worrying about getting whacked in the back of the head.

    And it's a lot of fun. Had to mention that twice.

    I read about the snake roll a while ago and that sure is a fun move to do, even if it is meant for two handed rods.

    My favorite overall is fishing a river with a downed tree that I KNOW has bass around behind, with only a tight window to hit to get there. Threading a streamer through a window in the branches to the perfect spot always makes me smile, even if the fish weren’t interested. Nothing sweeter than watching that loop unroll with only inches to spare.

    My favorite cast is the one that ends up with my leader, tippet, and flies all tied in a knot that knot even the most seasoned, talented, and highly intelligent knot tier could not possibly tie if he practiced for a thousand years. It never ceases to amaze me how my line can loop through itself so many times in one single stroke.

    That's a "nice cast!"
    If it ends with a fish on the hook, it was a "Pretty cast!"
