    Hi, great video, very informative. Could you please inform me what fly line you are using as it looks very controllable and supple, especially the orange with green tip? Tight lines.

    @Viktor4386 You’ll need to ensure you’re developing enough line speed to kick things around, and yes, stop earlier and more abruptly than you usually would. You’re correct in that the overpowered curve is exactly the same as a tuck cast – it’s just done in the horizontal plane rather than the vertical. Practice with a short leader!

    Stop early and hard. And if you can, immediately pull back on the rod tip.
    A shorter leader will also help, and of course if your fly has any weight in it that’s really going to help kick everything around as well.
    For a start try practicing with a short heavy leader, 6 – 9 ft

    Hello again Bumcast :)I feel I need some help with this cast. I’ve been trying to repeat it one whole afternoon, I didn’t get a single curve!
    For the overpowered curve, although I was double-hauling, however, I didn”t manage to form a curve with my line, does that mean that I should stop my rod much earlier, a bit like for the tuck cast, in addition to adding a strong haul on the front cast?

    Guys I was just about to film this cast this summer and put it on youtube! YOU HAVE SAVED MY LIFE! I have struggled horrendously with my guests trying to teach them this cast while dry fly fishing for Atlantic salmon…this one is going on my website (a popular Atlantic salmon website on google). FANTASTIC!!!!

    5 Stars!!! Free and strong endorsement from me for the rest of my life!!!!!

    @stevesnaps1 Pleasure Steve, it’s an easy one. We’ll have some more complex (but sexier) curves up later in the season.
