Rx for Windknots

As we transition to summer, casting will become more important. We’ll wish to reach farther in order to hit the prime lies for river, pond, and lake bass, bream, stripers and gar.

And we’ll tie a few unintentional wind knots in our leaders, at least until we get the rust out of our casting stroke.

Here are some great tips to smoothen your stroke.  Enjoy the article by Midcurrent and the Orvis audio podcast (jump to the 1:09 mark).  May this double-dose of a casting Rx help send your stealth bomber way up and under those overhanging tree limbs this summer -  - where a chunky Shoalie or fat largemouth will politely inhale it!
