The Reach Cast or Reach Mend

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. This tutorial, along with 9 other casts, the five essentials of fly casting and additional explanations are all included in one volume on our Casts that Catch Fish DVD. More Info...
