Precision and accuracy are key

Whether it's Caddis hatches on the Arkansas River, Coastal Sea Trout in Scandinavia or Big Browns at Dever Springs the back cast is key to a precise and accurate cast.

Room for a Good Back Cast?

One common challenge that anglers face is limited back casting space such as tight streams or overgrown trees on lakes. In these situations, it is crucial to have a fly line designed to overcome those challenges. Your casting technique may involve using a shorter stroke or utilizing roll casts to effectively present your fly. The EZ Back Cast takes care of this with it's quick loading taper.

Another important factor in achieving a successful back cast is proper rod loading,  the amount of energy stored in the rod during the back cast, which is released during the forward cast. By loading the rod correctly, you can generate more power and achieve greater distance and accuracy in your casts. 

The EZ Back Cast has an advanced taper design to transfer the power of the back cast into a long, straight, delicate forward cast that simply slices through wind.

Does it Really Make me a Better Caster?

The Overhang Marker® can greatly improve your casting technique by determining the correct amount of overhang, which is the length of the running line beyond the rod tip during the casting stroke. By using this tool, anglers can easily identify the loading point, which is the point at which the rod is loaded with energy and ready to deliver the fly.

Accuracy & Control

One of the main advantages of using the Overhang Marker® is that it provides a visual reference for anglers. The loading point is marked with a yellow section on the fly line, making it easy to identify and adjust accordingly resulting in more accurate and controlled casts.

Straight, Long Casts

Another benefit of the Overhang Marker® is its ability to prevent too many false casts. False casts are additional casts made in the air without actually delivering the fly to the target. While false casts can be useful for adjusting distance and line control, excessive false casts can spook fish and decrease the chances of a successful cast. By using the Overhang Marker®, anglers can minimize false casts and make straighter, longer casts in any wind.

Practice and experience are key in mastering the art of fly fishing, and the Overhang Marker® can be a valuable tool in that journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I cast effectively when there are obstructions like trees?

Casting around trees can be challenging, but with the right techniques and the right fly line with a Spey taper like the EZ Back Cast you can still make accurate casts. Consider using the Spey Casts technique, which involves making a roll cast or a Spey cast to avoid obstacles and deliver your fly accurately. Watch this video explaining what a Spey taper is and how to make a roll cast.

2. What is the Steeple Cast, and when should I use it?

The Steeple Cast is a casting technique that allows you to cast your fly high in the air, creating a steep trajectory. This technique is useful when you need to cast over tall obstacles or when you want to cover a long distance with your cast. By using the Steeple Cast, you can effectively reach areas that would otherwise be difficult to access. Watch this video on how to make a Steeple cast.

3. What should I focus on during my back cast?

When executing your back cast, it's essential to look at your back cast to ensure proper line control and accuracy. By observing your back cast, you can identify any issues or tangles before making your forward cast. This attention to detail will help you make smoother and more precise casts.

4. Should I use an open stance when casting?

Yes, using an open stance can greatly improve your casting technique. An open stance allows for better body rotation and weight transfer, resulting in more power and control during your cast. By positioning your feet slightly apart and facing your target, you can optimize your casting performance. We made a video on the subject. 

5. What is the Overhang Marker® and how can it benefit my casting?

The Overhang Marker® is a visual reference point on your fly line that helps you determine the optimal amount of overhang for your cast. By adjusting the amount of overhang, you can customize your cast to achieve tighter loops and improve accuracy. The Overhang Marker® is a valuable tool for anglers looking to fine-tune their casting technique. This video explains this crucial point.

6. Which fly line is best for limited back casting spaces?

It is crucial to have a fly line designed to overcome those challenges. Your casting technique may involve using a shorter stroke or utilizing roll casts to effectively present your fly. The EZ Back Cast takes care of this with it's triangle taper. A tried and tested head shape that makes roll casting effortless when needed.

Great fly line very happy with it has inprove my casting a lot

Stephen Barrett (Taunton, GB)
Remarkable casting ability

I took a chance and bought an EZ #4 for my #5 rod because the 5s have sold out.
It casts like an arrow even in the wind and so me taking a chance paid off. I also found that by not having more line than that I needed out, it pulled a few more inches off the reel which was better for presentation with the fly sailing forward.


Very good maybe the slickness of the line could be better but

Des Oconner
