Fly Cast Friday - Fly Casting in the wind - the three L's

Fly casting in the wind

Dealing with the Wind

I get a lot of anglers and customers asking about our fly rods and casting in windy conditions. The short answer is that battling the wind has more to do with technique and skill than the type or action of the fly rod being used. 

Understanding how to deal with the wind is one if the most valuable skills a fly angler can learn. Getting comfortable casting in windy conditions will not only afford more success on the water it will open up a lot more fishing opportunities whether they be on the river or out on the flats.
