101 Fly Fishing Tips for Beginners: Tip #31: Reach Casting and Tip #32: Slack Line Casting During a reach cast the fly, leader, and line are presented to your target area at a wide angle from the left or right side of the caster.
This allows you a great deal of reach. Reach casting is very useful when you want to send a fly across a river or stream that has more than one speed of current.
The reach cast lets you prevent your fly from being dragged down stream at a rate that is faster than the water where it is supposed to land.
Tip #32: Slack Line Casting
Slack line casting is when the fly line is able to fall onto the water in what are called “s” curves. This type of cast will let your fly float on the water without any dragging motion. You’ll want to use this cast when you’re casting over a current or into a downstream.
