Casting Into The Wind

Today's tip is about casting into the wind. To avoid backlashing and maintain distance into the wind the actual speed of the rod needs to increase as well as the force that the lure is moving into the wind. Try to avoid thinking of casting harder but rather generating more speed during the cast.

Try and think of the movement during a cast as building up energy to push the lure forward. The more kinetic energy generated during the movement, the more the lure will have when released. 

The best way to get better at this is going to the middle of the lake or an open area and casting into the wind. Not trying to catch fish, but perfecting the cast. Pay attention to each detail during the cast and try to make improvements. A GoPro would be good for this.

Have fun and hope this helps,
