The better your throw, the more fun you will have and the more relaxed you will be on the water. Pete Kutzer is one of the best casting instructors in the world and one of the best anglers you will meet. This means that he teaches casting to make fishing more enjoyable and is therefore pragmatic and flexible. He practices his own casting almost every day and gives us tips on how to practice at home no matter what type of fishing you end up doing. You won’t regret it – and neither will your guide if you hire one.

In the Fly Box, we have some interesting questions and helpful tips from listeners, including:

  • I need a rod for bass fishing as well as casting streamers for trout. I only have light trout rods. Which rod should I choose?
  • What is a competition hook and how is it different from a regular hook?
  • A great tip on how to make matte beads from shiny gold beads without painting or marking them.
  • I know that when tying a tippet, you shouldn’t make more than a .002″ difference. Can I avoid major differences in heavy shaft material?
  • I have been fly fishing for 35 years and am looking for an advanced course. Where should I go?
  • Do you know anything about fishing in Switzerland?
  • How can I target carp in dirty water?
  • I go Atlantic salmon fishing in Norway. Can I use a single handed rod even though most people use two handed rods?
  • A tip from a listener to always crush the barbs of the hooks when fishing with children.
  • My line gets twisted when fishing with a dry/dropper setup. Is there a way to avoid this?
  • My tungsten beads burst when I hit rocks behind me on my throwback. Are there beads that are more durable than tungsten?
  • How can I fish the bottoms of ponds in small streams without getting any resistance?
  • I can’t get a redfish to eat my flies on the surf line. Any suggestions?
