Of all the slack line casts this is the one that you’ll use most often, in-fact if you tend to present your fly side on and at an angle to your fish - (and I suggest you do) then you’ll want to use this cast pretty much every time you throw a fly.
Technically this is not actually a cast but an aerial mend. By definition any line repositioning that occurs before the rod stops is a cast of one sort or other. But if the line is repositioned after the stop this is no longer a cast but a mend, and in this case the repositioning is performed after the stop but while the line is till fully aerialised – hence it’s correct name, Reach Mend.
If you are a fly angler you’ll be familiar with the concept of mending – this is normally the repositioning of line whilst on the water to help negate varying currents and achieve a longer drag free drift. You usually try to throw some slack up or down stream – this slack line still gets taken up by the current but it does help prolong the time before the line goes taught and starts dragging the fly.
