Casting and Presentation Strategies for Trout

The biggest problem most fishermen have revolves around casting, mending, and presentation.  It’s pretty simple, if you don’t get this right you are not going to catch too many fish.  As a group, we seem are able to spend a lot of time and money on the gear, the destination, flies, etc. but not a whole lot of energy on the foundation of the sport, casting.  I’ve never met Jason but I was most impressed with his approach.  As a mater of fact, I learned something new - always a treat.  I’d sure recommend you give a listen to his thoughtful presentation. -- Paul Prentiss
