False Casting

False casting is very simple.  As you cast the fly backwards and forwards, don’t release the fly towards your target in the forward position.  (Hence the name False cast)  Fly fishermen use the false cast to cast farther by stripping out more line as they go back and forth.  False casting also works to remove water from a dry fly.  A couple of false casts can help your dry fly appear more natural in the water, which will help you get more strikes.
