OrvisNews.com reader Dave S. asked:
I think I have a pretty decent casting motion, but the biggest issue I have is in the wind. I always get that tailing loop, and my leader knots up. I think it's more pronounced in the wind because I strain harder. What practice tips can you give me to help?
In this video, Peter demonstrates how to beat the wind by casting lower, angling the rod tip, and even making the cast backwards.
Peter has been a fisherman all his life, and he has a degree in outdoor education from Johnson State College. He's also a seriously good caster, and during his years working for Orvis he has seen it all.
