Let's start with stance; if I were trying to make a long distance cast I would normally open up my feet allowing my left foot (I am an ideal handed caster) to be positioned forward of my shoulders and my ideal foot back, this would allow me to make the longest stroke of the rod on the forward and back cast. In contrast, if I were trying to make really accurate casts I would square my feet up directly under my shoulders and even allow my ideal foot to lead slightly to the target. This would allow me to sweep the fly rod directly overhead and down my line of vision towards the target thus giving me maximized accuracy.

Additionally, how you hold the rod can also be varied to maximize accuracy. The very best two grips for accuracy casts would be to hold the rod with either the thumb on top of the rod or the forefinger on top of the rod. The forefinger grip is slightly more accurate but oftentimes more fatiguing. From a fishing stand point the advantages of being an accurate caster are evident, but while practicing you not only wish to work with casting to targets but also casting in front of and beyond your targets to simulate leading a fish.

Check out your target as a moving fish and determine what direction the fish is moving and try to place the fly two feet in front of and two feet beyond the target. If you get good accurately leading targets while practicing it will be like acquired behavior while out fishing! This will be especially crucial as we approach the tailing fish or fish in really shallow water ... when these fish are up on the flats nosing down on crabs or other crustaceans they are nearly oblivious to their surroundings which allows us to sneak in close for the best cast. In many cases, especially when wade fishing, we can get to within 20-30 feet of the fish before they scare off of the flat so under these scenarios a well controlled short cast will serve you extremely well. Until next time, Go on Casting!

Kayaks can be an inflexible hull or inflatable; inflexible kayaks are generally made of polyethylene, while inflatables are made of a PVC material. The majority of people pick an inflexible hull, as they are more stable and more resistant to damage. Inflatable kayaks have their advantages, however: they are much lighter and as a result much easier to transfer (an inflatable kayak is typically about the size of a travel suitcase when deflated). Inflatable kayaks typically feature a pump of some sort, so they can be conveniently transferred to the water and inflated at arrival.

When determining what size kayak to get, there are tradeoffs. Fishing kayaks generally range from 10 to 16 feet long and 26 to 34 inches large. A shorter (12 feet or less) and broader (30 inches or more) kayak will turn conveniently, but will be far more tough to paddle and maintain speed. A longer (more than 13 feet) and narrower (less than 30 inches) kayak will glide through the water faster with less effort, but will be harder to turn. They also don't manage in the wind as well.

With that in mind, consider where you will be fishing. If you intend on going to the ocean, which requires mostly straight-line traveling over distances with few turns, a long and narrow kayak is more effective. If you intend on fishing in a smaller lake or creek, a shorter, broader kayak is the way to go.
