A word on casting… but not from me

I was watching a video of a guy fishing in Cuba. Love Cuba. Beautiful place and the fishing? Please.

However, hated the guy’s casting. It was painful. Jerky. The opposite of smooth. I was almost offended.

You ever had a Bahamain guide borrow your rod and cast, effortlessly, the whole damn line? Yeah… I have. Humbling.

Here is a Caribbean guide with some pointers (and yes, that is Davin, from Flatswalker).

  1. Davin is the man. Check out his explanation of “Taming the Wind” if you haven’t already seen it. Does a great job explaining another way to cast in windy conditions.

  2. great tip! especially for us stream trout fisherman. seems like I have to re -learn that every time I get back on the ocean. I end up missing a few buy trying to set the hook with the rod instead of the line.
