  cross-country cast   English
  A tactic for trout fisherman in a river, standing on land about 7-8 m away from the shore. When using this method, the fly line is lying on the ground, and only the leader is dropped on the water surface. This method was introduced by G.E.M. Skues of Britain in his excellent-book "Minor Tactics of the Chalk Stream" (1910). He recommended it as a good method to catch careful trout that stay near the shore.
  Although the overhead cast is sufficient, a horizontal cast is better, he wrote, because the horizontal cast has a lesser chance to be detected by the trout.
