Learning a double haul

I'm trying to learn how to double haul but having a tough time of it. How did you guys learn how to double haul? I'm an ok caster...probably have some bad habits being that I'm self taught....I'm definitely to much of a wrist caster.

If you cast into a good wind, it will pull out your backcast and let you feel the exact time you should begin your haul on the forward cast.

Mud, I like that video! Anyone have a suggestion for an inexpensive shooting head for a 5wt simply for learning purposes?

Double Haul

I was thinking of learning to double haul too. Is shooting taper line needed for this?

You can double haul with any line. Though some tapers and configurations might make make it easier, do not feel you need to go out and buy anything specific to learn this technique.

While there is information in a number of written sources, from magazines to books, I agree with lostdutchman and Mudbug, it is probably easier to pick up by watching rather than reading. Best case, find someone to show you, as they can offer direct explanation and response to questions. If anyone is near Ahwatukee and wants to learn, I'd be happy to meet up.

It is definitely something that is useful to the vast majority of flyfisherman, and surprisingly underutilized.
