FISHING HOLIDAYS | Double Haul Casting
for fishing holidays or short breaks in the UK
for fishing holidays overseas
In this video, Tim Gaunt-Baker (NorfolkFlyFishing.com) talks to Paul Grothier (FishingHolidays.travel) after a fly fishing lesson where Tim successfully taught Paul the double haul cast.
After some initial challenges, Paul mastered the correct technique of this cast. Tim say's that it can often take two or three lessons to get it right but Paul picked it up very quickly.
This particular lesson was held on grass rather than on the river as it is often easier to concentrate on your hands and on the line. Tim says that it is crucial, particularly in the early stages of mastering this cast, to see the way your hands are working.
As a fly fishing cast, the double haul creates more line speed so that you can get more distance.
Paul was off to the Fraser River in Canada, fishing with a single-handed rod on one of his guided fishing holidays The double haul is the best casting technique to use for the trip's particular style of fishing as it allows you to get the necessary distance as well as control the heavy flies used.
Later in the video, Paul discusses his great adventure fishing holiday company, which guarantees a free fishing holiday if you don't catch your target fish.
