Castin' on Top of the World - Fly rods and Fly casting above San Francisco - The Swift Fly Fishing Company - Epic Fly Rods

A couple of great shots taken a while back by Cameron Mortenson from over at the Fiberglass Manifesto - I've been meaning to share them for many weeks, but have just been swamped  - so here they are. (Click to zoom up)

The dashing chap casting the Epic 580 above the San Francisco skyline is George Revel of Lost Coast Outfitters. The shots  originally featured in a Blog post "A morning with George Revel"  by Cameron back in March and we think they are very cool indeed - thanks for sharing Cam'!

(The title of the post is a fairly lame reference to the Blues standard -  "Sittin' On Top  of the World" ....in case you were wondering.
The Howlin Wolf and Jack White versions are particularly good btw)

Having seen a few tails and created more than my fair share - most entirely involuntarily - I think it best to keep things relatively simple. After-all, we're all about fly fishing rather than any in-depth analysis of casting physics.
Fly fishing and certainly fly casting is most certainly the sport of exceptions and in order to attempt to explain anything in fly casting you tend to have to generalise  -and that’s what i’m about to do.
