In order to acquire the desired goal with precision in carp fishing, the most effective method of casting is to cast above the head...

For a successful realization of the precise casts at great distances, you always need to primarily settle in the same location, before the rod pod*, and use the visual orientational clues*. The body position also plays an important role. Settle across the location which you want to reach, with legs spread apart.
Hold the rod towards the back above the shoulder, so that the fishing line, approximately one meter long, sets up the bait to 20 or 30 cm above the ground. During this phase, your right arm is bent and close to the reel, while the left arm is extended and holds the rod on the base of the rod.


Warning: monofilament line, and especially the braided line, are very brittle, and you therefore have to keep your fingers on the roll, and never on the fishing line.

Let the rod vein function

In the continous action, while the left hand pulls, and the right pushes, do a forward throw for the rig cast. Your eyes stays fixed towards the location you want to reach, and is found 3-5 m farther from the fishing zone. A few moments before the rig touches the water surface, in order that it straightens up in the air and avoid tangling, slow down the unwinding of the monofilament line from the reel, stopping the guide with your finger. At the same time, slowly lower the rod, following the downard path of the lead.


Pay attention to the river current. The rig has to touch the water surface upstream from the fishing location, at a distance proportional to the depth, current strength, and lead weight.



Remonter   * rod pod: signifies a collection of three to four rods which are most frequently installed on a rod stand with adjustable legs.
* orientational clue: serves for precise locating of the groundbaiting zone; it can be a natural sign, fixated, set on the opposite shore or water surface, but angler himself can also temporarily set up a mark, float, a piece of polystyrene.
