The Belgian Cast

What does it mean...the Belgian cast?

The Belgian Cast is a continuous motion cast. There is no stop between the back cast motion and the forward cast. Because it keeps the fly well away from the caster it is a safer cast to use when casting large flies or weighted flies such as streamers. It can also be used to cast safely in the wind.
