There is an innate beauty in a fly cast. There is a sense of satisfaction and well being that comes from standing in a stream or on the shoreline and rhythmically casting a fly line. The fly line, moving through the air, floating, unrolling, seemingly weightless, appears to defy the law of gravity.
Most people are familiar with Spin or Bait casting. Spin fishinermen cast a lure or weight on the end of the line and like throwing a rock, they hurl the weight and the line follows. In fly casting, we attempt to cast an almost weightless fly, made of feathers, hair and thread, to a target and present that fly in a manner that will imitate a natural food source. In fly casting, the line itself is the weight and the fly is along for the ride.
