Distance Fly Casting: Two very different styles

with very similar results.

here’s Fredrik Hedman and Stefan Siikavaara, both cool guys, Swedish and two of the better fly distance competitors in the world. as you can see, there’s a heck of a lot of training and thought behind each one’s style.

  1. Cool stuff, Marc. I played around with that “right-foot forward” stance back when all of those Rick Hartman videos were around. Hoped it would make my tracking better, but I could never get used to it. Went back putting my left foot forward. Still didn’t cast anywhere near as far as these guys though! Very impressive.

  2. Actually it did Marc. I can definitely see the advantage as far as that goes. I just never could get comfortable with it.

  3. Hi Mark,
    I am able to cast 25 m and I would like to improve it. Unfortunately my cross dominance (left dominant eye and right dominant hand) does not help me, any tips?
