A back-cast refers to the casting motion in fly fishing and certain other casting techniques where the angler casts the fishing line behind them, typically in a straight line or with a slight arc, before making the forward cast. In fly fishing, the back-cast is crucial for loading the fly rod with energy and positioning the line for the forward cast. It allows the angler to extend the length of the cast and deliver the fly to the desired target with precision. Proper timing and technique are essential for executing effective back-casts, as they directly influence the accuracy and distance of the cast.
