Heart-stopping topwater strikes don’t have to be followed by casting fatigue or an aching elbow or wrist. Fly casting, if your mechanics are poor, can cause physical pain. Throw a big ol’ popper into the mix and it can get worse. But that is avoidable—all it takes is some adjustments in both the construction of a popper and in the way you cast it.
Here’s a cool little short for fly guys, not to mention, if you haven’t stalked the flats in the Florida Keys yet, this might just convince you. Join captains Bou Bosso and Brian Gabriel for an up close experience of a great day on the water sight fishing for redfish and tarpon.
