Catching the fly

Hi Paul,

You don't find the snap useful for catching the fly (for changing or drying it, etc.). You'd rather strip all the line in and start making false casts and shooting it back again? :???:

Hi Aitor,

No I bring it back into a large D-loop, catch the D and make a soft cast to draw the line through my hand until I reach the leader.

Obviously you can use the Snap Cast but I would be a bit concerned about teaching that because I just know that if I did that someone is hook themselves and it would be my fault :p

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.
