Conventional anglers are used to fishing from the bank, but with the room needed for a typical cast, fly anglers usually go wading. With the Steeple Cast, we can get a cast off with trees fairly close behind us. We can fish from the bank even with some vegetation in front of us. It's a handy cast to have in our arsenal and easy to learn. If you can make an overhead cast, you can do the Steeple Cast.
