Has anyone ever try this, GF backhand power haul?



The fly fishing show is next Saturday. Maybe we all should come out and try this, since there will be casting lane at the show.


The only reason to ever do this cast other than just showing off would be to deal with a crosswind that threatens to blow the line/fly into you.The way I deal with that situation is to tilt the rod at about a 45 degree angle away from me so that the line passes safely to my right on the backcast despite the right to left crosswind.Than on the forward cast I tilt the rod at a 45degree angle in the opposite direction so the line passes safely to my left.Another technique is to turn around to face the opposite direction & make the backcast the delivery cast.
