Timely Casting Tips

Since we are on the verge of topwater season, this nice article might help many of you to perfect your casting game.


I especially like the tip on a roll-cast startup.  With more line left outside the rod tip, fewer false casts are needed to reach your target.  I’ve been using that technique for decades to limit false casts and spend more time fishing instead of casting.

Special thanks to the late, great RocketRoy Lowe, who taught me the “backwards drift” technique at an NGTO fling years ago. Try the “heavy load” tip in this article and cast farther toward those breaking Lanier stripers.

As dry/dropper season “springs”upon us, give some of these tips a try. You just might find a few more fish on the end of your line this spring.

Special thanks to midcurrent.com for the story lead.
