I have used the Crystal Cast
with a variety of baits, flies, and lures.
I caught this beauty, a “Cutbow”, casting a 1/8 oz.
Luhr-Jensen “Hot Shot” with the Crystal Cast.
I was able to cast this very light weight lure about
60 ft. without spooking this big boy.
These hybrid Cutthroat/Rainbow trout really fight!
I am writing to let you know the
Crystal Cast worked like a charm!
We fly fished for Striped Bass,
sight fishing in gin clear water
of 1 to 2 feet, on the shallow flats of
eastern Long Island (Shelter Island
and East Hampton/Sag Harbor).
We fish these exactly like Bonefish
in the Keys or Bahamas. Our guide
was Capt Dave Blinken.
I attached the Crystal Cast to my G Loomis
7 1/2 ft. rod loaded with 8 lb. test, then attached
the exact same fly we used on the 8 wt. fly rods
to a 4 ft. leader to the Crystal Cast. It cast a long
way, 45 to 60+ feet easily.
The Crystal Cast allowed the fly to have almost
the same action as it did on the fly rod. I caught 2
nice fish, and got several strikes. It’s really hard to find
a technique to do this very specialized type of fishing
with a spin rod, but the Crystal Cast did the job.
Thanks! The Crystal Cast made for a great day, and
I now have an option for non-fly fisherman who want
to do these trips with me.

Spin and Fly fishing - Catching Crappie
I've always been intrigued by fly fishing, but never took the time to sit get out and give it a try. In fact, I have a brand new fly rod we won a few years ago, still haven't spooled it up yet.
Late last season, I picked up some Crystal Cast bobbers from
www.spinandfly.com. These bobbers are designed to help cast flies using a spinning rod.
With the heat wave we're having, I took the kids for an outing as they were off school for Victoria day. I tied on some flies I found in a old box from my dad's 40+ year old gear, and gave it a shot just to see what happens.
We tried the flies on our spinning gear with the Crystal Cast. Nice surprise! I got my first hit within a couple minutes,
landed this 13 inch black crappie. The kids did well too!
The Crystal Cast allows the Spin Fisherman to cast and retrieve flies, light-weight lures, and delicate baits when fishing surface or shallow water. The Crystal Cast's elongated body, aero-dynamic and hydro-dynamic design, and Horizontal Floatation: --Casts far --Lands on the water with less splash --Minimizes line and leader tangling --Lets you use a longer leader --Retrieves smooth --Optimizes the action of the fly, lure, or bait.
Order Quantity of 1 ea. includes two Crystal Casts per 1 display card as pictured here.
