The false cast may be used for two different operations in fly fishing. Initial it truly is used to help in altering directions amongst casts. It also aids us to set and determine the desistance in the cast to a provided point. The false cast is repeated three or four times to help us move towards the right or left, not letting it lay on the water until our final cast. Second it is a great cast to use to help dry out a water logged dry fly.

Lift the fly line off the water as in any standard cast. Let the back cast unroll behind you until you feel a slight pull backwards on the rod. Your line ought to make a small loop.

Bring your fly rod forward but don't let the line settle around the water. Wait until the line is out in front forming a small loop. Repeat all movement until you are prepared to make your final cast.
