50s Fly Casting

Kevin, Indigo’s idea man, was wondering the other day how fast flies fly.  After much internet searching we’re only slightly closer to answering that question.  But one of the bonus fruits of all our searching labor is this video from 1956.  No offense Cam, but one  of the things that date this video is the floppy fiberglass rod.  But other than that, the casting stroke, double hauls, etc. are all quite modern.  Pretty cool to see the continuity between modern fly casting and 1950s fly casting. Now if we could just find a video from 1880.

Stay tuned tomorrow for some salmon pump up.  Those big fish are just around the corner.  Never a dull moment here on the Third Coast.
