THURSDAY JULY 16
5:00PM TO 8:00PM
Free San Jose Flycasters Casting Clinic
Tailing Loops , Windy Conditions and Assorted Casting Problems
"Perhaps the biggest problem facing anyone who can fly cast beyond 45 feet is a tailing loop. A tailing loop is when the leader and the front of the line crash into the main line near the end of the cast. While tailing loops can occur anytime, they usually develop in a longer cast – especially when the angler makes an extra effort to gain greater distance than he or she can comfortably cast. " Lefty Kreh
