The canyon cast is a comparatively simple maneuver, occasioned by periods when you are fishing a stream and the foliage, trees or rocks form a more or less narrow channel in which your line must travel on the back cast. It is done merely by turning sideways and actually making a forward cast to the rear, to control the direction of your line. If your rod is not of the best quality it may be necessary for you to roll the grip in your hand so that the guides on the rod are facing in the direction toward which you are directing each cast. If the rod is a sturdy well constructed one this isn’t necessary as the soft and hard planes are much less pronounced.
