About Casting Across
CastingAcross.com is a fly fishing and fly fishing lifestyle website that is all about the quarry and the culture of fly fishing. Articles mainly focus on the people, places, and things that go into the pursuit of fish. Experiences on the water, angling company profiles, and humor are featured more prominently than “tips n’ tricks” pieces. Content is published three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), along with other activity across all major social media platforms. Casting Across has developed a good core readership and is looking to expand as the website nears its two-year anniversary.
