Default The first cast matters

If you are fly fishing, make sure to try your best at the first cast. It is believed that the feeding trout will mostly take the first lure.

I would also think that if you have a messy first cast that splashes, it might scare away nearby trout and it will take a while for them to settle down and trust the lure at all.

True. I give it a rest for about 30 minutes or so, or I make the next cast in a different area. I hated it when I could not make a proper casting.

You want that cast to land as smoothly and quietly as possible so the presentation looks as natural as possible. The more the fly lands on the water like a real bug, the greater your chances of hooking a fish.
