The DOUBLE HAUL is probably one of the more misunderstood casts in all of fly fishing, in two ways. First, many anglers believe that the double haul is too difficult to learn, that it requires some mystical timing-and-coordination combination that they’ll never master.
The second misconception is that double-hauling is for saltwater anglers only. However, it’s a useful cast for almost any kind of trout fishing, even if you’re chasing trout on small streams. For one thing, the double haul takes a lot of strain off your casting arm and shoulder, leaving you less tired after a long day on the water. It also helps you cast into the wind and can improve accuracy.
