Welcome to our seventh installment of "Ask a Fly-Fishing Instructor," starring our own Peter Kutzer, who works at the Manchester, Vermont, Fly Fishing School. A couple months ago, we asked you to post some questions about your biggest casting problems. Reader "Bill E." wrote,
How about some help with hauling and double hauling.
In this lesson, Peter explains why the double haul is useful for adding distance to the cast and taking pressure off your casting arm and wrist. The he demonstrates exactly what you need to do for a successful double haul, from the right timing to the proper length of your haul. If you've got more questions for Peter, post them below, and we'll address each casting problem in a new video.
The summer of 2012, I dedicated over 100 hours to filming and documenting the experiences that not only I had but also of those who spent time at my family's camp in Bristol Bay, Alaska; employee and client alike. It depicts and shares, from start to finish, the life that I've known from the first few months of my existence. The Alaska state flower is the Forget Me Not, which is the inspiration for the naming of this film. I didn't do this for any type of compensation, just simply to share and retell the story of an Alaskan summer. Enjoy! -Camille

My first attempt at editing gopro footage.
Enjoying the river and the casting as much, if not more than chasing fish, I spent some happy hours alone on a beautiful stretch of the Muskegon river. I have no doubt the action will heat up in the coming months
