    What the hell is wrong with all of your racist comments???? You should all be ashamed, I’m sure your mother is.

  3. MrBoBoTom says:

    Black people fly fish? OMG, my stereotypes of the old white man has been shattered!

  4. Streamer113 says:

    When did black people start fly fishing?

    @alright4u You’re comparing apples to oranges. They’ll both work, it depends on the caster and the water he’s fishing. I do almost all of my fishing with thumb on top, but I’ve done it with the index finger too, on really small waters. BTW I’ve worked in the fly fishing industry for most of my life, so don’t try to play the experience card.

    Remove the obscuring text you can’t see a thing that your are trying to demonstrate.

    @Trouttaranaki With a statement like that, you’re not worth the chair that you’re sat on

  9. Trouttaranaki says:

    tailing loops…

  11. alright4u says:

    The thumb is on the top front of cork for almost every experienced caster I knoe. The bottom three fingers and palm of hand are main grip and yes your thumb should point where you are casting .Learn to cast. Get with your local fly shop, join TU, Many will help.

  12. alright4u says:

    This is dead wrong. You cannot cast 90 feet acting like the gay fly rodder.

  13. AlvinDedeaux says:

    I agree thanks for the comment.

  14. supernapy says:

    Some times it helps people to put there index finger all along on the grip and point it towards the tip, it has helped a lot of people I know. Kind of like your telling yourself your number 1 while holding the grip..

  15. 60filt says:

    My God!! Wy can´t you get it, there is nothing wrong about using your wrist. You just have to know how and when to use it….

  16. sporabolic says:

    how do you avoid using your wrist in the cast if your grip is so loose?

  17. g3300porno says:

  20. HawkJay6 says:

    I use my thumb as i feel i can get more power into my casts

  21. xoskyeox says:

    i use my index finger on small waters i feel i get better rod control

  22. elgroomez says:

    Because these tips are for beginners/novices learning to flyfish.

  23. maxistviews says:

    Do the people in these videos think they are telling us things we don’t already know?
    I watched this thinking that i’d learn a new technique, but all i saw was a guy holding a rod, and not even in a position in which it would be operational. What is the point?

  24. dirtTdude says:

    thumb on top or inex finger?

  25. balto344 says:
