Here are the various types of pick-ups discussed:

  • The Lift in a PUALD Cast
  • Roll-Cast Pick-up
  • Snapcast Pick-up
  • Spiral Lift Pick-up
  • “Digging it out” or Zig-Zag Lift
  • The Dynamic Lift
It’s an exploration. Bring a fly rod. Designed for you by Paul Arden.


Maybe a small excursion into Sexyloops is in order now… “Digging it out” is courtesy of my good friend Camo-Guy who I first met on the side of Mystery River X on my first trip to New Zealand. Camo-Guy is a Stealth Master

And here are three days fishing with Guy somewhere in New Zealand…
