The Least You Need to Know.

Hold a fly rod above the reel, with your thumb along the top of the grip. Find a position that's comfortable but gives you control of the rod.

False cast the rod back and forth, pulling line from the reel to increase the amount of line in the air. Confine your back-and-forth arcs to the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions, with 12 o'clock being directly overhead.

Put some energy into your last cast to enable the fly to reach your target, but don't hurry the castparticularly your back cast.

After the overhead cast, the roll cast is the most practical in fishing situations.
