The Utility Casts

The Wave and Spiral Casts Casts

 The Wave and Spiral casts were both developed to enable a dry fly to be picked up from the water surface without either drowning the fly or making a significant amount of noise. The Wave cast is particularly useful when the angler is fishing approximately dead upstream whereas the Spiral cast can be used in any direction.​

The Cut Cast

This cast is designed to allow the angler to make a cast when the space behind the angler would not allow a conventional back cast to be made.
