Underhand Flip Cast for Carp

I have been having fun making videos lately.   I am no Spielberg but sometimes it is so much easier to show something than explain it in writing.  Here is another one, this time on the underhand flip cast which is a very useful tool for presenting the fly to carp in the 10 to 20 feet range.

  1. Thanks for this. I can see immense utility in this approach. Very commonsensical yet I wouldn't have put two and two together. Shared the video with my local fly club.

    1. It is really interesting. On techniques like this and the drag and drop many carpers across the country independently develop them eventually because carp just demand something like it. You would have worked out something similar eventually.

  2. Very good! I should use this more than I do as most of my fish actually caught, rather than cast to, are in this range or closer,

    1. It tends to work better on moderately high banks too which could be helpfull on some of your waters I have seen pictures of.

  3. Great video Trevor. You know, it's really cool to see stuff like this because the image of carping, and fly fishing in general, is of long casts and tight loops with small flies, so it's neat to see how the job really gets done in most cases. Short range and tight accuracy rule the day.
