As you will have seen this is something that I do to make the PUALD Shooting Shot for Snakehead however I’ve come to realise that any time you have a surface fly such as a dry fly or a popper (and need to lengthen the line) then you can make it and it will benefit your cast.

Take your adverage lift and watch what it does, generally it both lifts the line and draws the fly towards you. In the case of a surface fly there is no need to draw it towards you, so under all circumstances I can think of it’s quite possible to slip line during the lift.

The benefits of this is a faster delivery and less falsecasting. When I’m “hitting the banks” with poppers the slipped lift usually allows no false casting or max one false cast and these are respectable accuracy shots to around 25m.

(It’s also possible to slip lift with sunk flies too but you have to take a little bit of care at the start of the stroke to ease the fly out the water, so it’s best to first learn with a popper. Incidentally with the popper you will find that it’s critical that all the line is lifted from the water including leader before you make the Casting Stroke otherwise the popper will get pulled under and pop out disrupting your cast).

Finally - the slipped lift is at the core of virtually all my Spey fishing. It much more efficient to slip line than make a downstream roll cast to lengthen line.

I’ve just thought of one - a very long pick up. Say 17m. Here you can’t slip :p

Just make sure you're not a good conductor, offer lots of resistance, then it's not a problem :D

Hi Paul, I tried to slip line during the lift in the PUALD. It works but made it hard for me to shoot line in the pick up bc. Do you still shoot here? Since I can't shoot as good here anymore I don't get the line out with less false casts (compared to the no slip lift but shooting pubc) yet. Am I missing something? Regards Bernd

Hi Bernd,

Yes I shoot in the first backcast. There is only one cast and no false casts. With 2m of fly line starting outside the rod tip how far can you cast a PUALD with no false casting? That’s what this shot is all about.

Cheers, Paul
