Learn Fly Casting with Casting Angles
Casting Angles is a compilation of fishing casts that I began working on in the early nineties. It can be used to diagnose your cast and offer the tools for coming up with new casts for on the stream. The Great Smoky Mountains streams offer such diverse current and canopy for assisting me to create such a fly casting text.
The book has fishing casts that solve problems on the stream! You can read reviews of the book here. I am humbled that so much of the lingo that I came up with from teaching and instructing fly casting in the late 1980s has become a common language globally among the instructor community today.
The terminology definitely helped to shape the way I perceived fly casting and still does today. We make fly casts when fishing to solve problems on the stream. The beauty of fly fishing is really all about solving problems!
Learn about a change of direction fly casting for instantaneous improvement on stream! Fly fishers spend all kinds of resources on trips, gear, etc…. and far too often neglect the most important aspect of the sport-FLY CASTING! I can ship the books signed and direct from here or you can go to Amazon.com.

“If you want to understand the mechanics (and some physics) behind the cast, this is the book. It can take a while for the non-technical person to get through it, but it’s definitely worth it. It will change your thinking about casting.”
Carolyn Emery, Atlanta, GA (2020)
“I’ve begun to read this book, my fortunate position is I can ask Mac all of the questions, where I am not understanding the point. So far so good, and it’s great to be mentored by Mac Brown. He has to keep it simple stupid (kiss) methodology for skills.”
George Forster, Wodonga, Australia (2017)
“When Mac Brown wrote Casting Angles, he could not have foreseen the influence it would have in the world of Fly Casting instruction. Fly fishing has become a sport enjoyed by so many not only in the US but worldwide. The contents of this work can help you as a fly fisher is beneficial toward learning real deal methodologies in fly casting. I highly recommend Mac Brown, Casting Angles.”
“Of the books on casting one-handed rods (including Lefty and Mel Krieger) this book is the one I like best. The analysis of the fundamentals is incisive and the box exercises are revealing. It is well worth the price. While it seems much for an Amazon paperback, but the quality of the printing and content justifies the price.”
Jonathan Walter, Denver CO (2013)
“I am a casting Geek, and therefore I really enjoyed this book. It would not be such a good book for a beginner. I refer to it often.”
Carl McNeil, Wanaka, NZ (2008)
“Casting Angles is an extensive and detailed study of fly casting and fishing techniques. Mac Brown covers a huge number of presentation casts, techniques, and fly casting principles and busts a few myths along the way. Mac is obviously not conventional in either his casting or thinking and it is this approach that delivers an original and thought-provoking treatment to a discipline that has had much press over the years. Casting angles is a serious in-depth examination of the mechanics of fly casting; a more thorough casting book I have not read, and I’ve read quite a few.”
John Till (2003)
“I will not go into great detail, except to say that this is a unique book and is very helpful to a person who desires to become a good to the expert caster. I have read in excess of 50 casting books and this is a must; one of the top 5 or 6.”
