This One Casting Tip Can Significantly Increase Your Casting Distance & Accuracy [VIDEO]

Casting isn’t just casting…
When it comes to casting a spinning reel, there are tons of different casting techniques that have many different pros and cons.
And for those who want to catch a lot of fish with artificial lures, the type of casting motion you use can make a huge difference.
To maximize results with your cast (in terms of distance and accuracy), your goal should be to find a casting motion that gets the most output with the least input.
Just like a golfer wants to maximize his or her swing with the best mechanics possible, you should have the same goal as an angler.
So we need to make sure that we’re utilizing the leverage points and taking advantage of the power capabilities in the rod.
And this post will focus on increasing your casting distance while decreasing the casting motion when using spinning gear.
What Is The Best Casting Technique?
The most effective technique that I’ve found when using spinning gear is something I learned from fly fishing.
In case you’re not familiar with fly fishing, the technique that the distance casters use is called the “double haul”…
Which means that the casting motion starts with the backswing which loads the rod with kinetic energy, that then gets transferred to the forward cast by the elasticity of the rod.
To see an example, check out this sightfishing from a 3rd-floor balcony video.
In summary, it’s best to load the rod with energy in the backward motion before the making the forward portion of the cast.
This video below shows this loading technique applied with spinning gear.

For anglers who use artificial lures, it is extremely important to get the most distance and accuracy while using minimal effort in every cast.
And this double haul technique pulled from fly fishing can help save a ton of energy when spin fishing while also allowing for increased distance and accuracy.
For example, check out this sight fishing cast from a 3rd-floor balcony.
Don’t be the angler on the boat, pier, or kayak that is the shortest caster… it just might cost you that fish a little bit farther out…
