One More Last Cast

By the way, if you’re a casting instructor and not reading Aitor Coteron’s One More Last Cast blog, you need to be. Aitor and I have known each other for quite some time, and for years he has been quietly amassing all sorts of slow-motion video and in-depth looks at casting.

Aitor’s work is mentioned numerous times in my upcoming casting book, and his videos are free for all to watch. Just go in with an open mind, as you may need to leave some traditional outlooks on fly casting behind once you start to read/watch.

Foundation Casting Stroke (a.k.a. FCS)

My friend, Marc Fauvet, asked for a video of the Foundation Casting Stroke (as discussed in Single-Handed Fly Casting). I happened to have a nice, fresh one sitting on my system. Marc now has a full post up on his blog, The Limp Cobra.

There is a lot more to say about the FCS in SHFC chapters two and three. It’s a casting stroke that has origins way back in fly casting, but I present it in a way that allows a caster to use his or her body to assist in self-teaching. I also use it as the basis for the other casts in my SHFC book (even Spey? Yes, after it gets some modification along the way).
