How to avoid from knocking yourself out
When casting a fly pattern that you have added weight to the tippet above the fly itself or to the fly patten, you should modify your casting with the fly rod tip angled away from your body on your casting side. Then you will not knock yourself out.
When you are casting and the wind is blowing from your casting side, you should cast with your casting arm and the fly rod angle across the front of you body, so that the fly line and fly are clear of your body on the opposite side.
This way your body will never be in the way of the direction of the cast...
Otherwise, might I recommend that you start wearing a construction helmet when fly fishing... ~Parnelli
