It’s fly fishing time!

Fly casting can be a tough, complicated process, but thankfully we’ve got ex-Orvis instructor and Salt Strong Insider member, Joe Sherer back to help us out.

He spent many years as a fly fishing instructor and he noticed that most people make the same few mistakes when they’re fly casting.

To see if you’re making these mistakes (and to see how to fix them), check out the video below.

Especially appreciate the comment about the wrist naturally breaking on the back cast, requiring a 12 o’clock stop vs 2. Never thought about it that way but it makes a lot of sense. Thanks.
