Default Re: Help...hooking own line all of a sudden

This is a little off the wall, but I control my tailing loop by thinking about my golf swing.

Overpowering a fly rod and a graphite driver, and/or imparting power too early in the stroke with either of them is disastrous. So, when the dreaded tailing loop appears, if I back off on the power just a bit and make sure to impart power later in the stroke my casts (like my tee shots) go further with less effort and with better accuracy. It's just about letting the club or rod work as they were designed.

...and it sounds suspiciously like what T Rajeff says in that excellent video...

Sounds dumb, I guess, but it does work (for me)...-Mike
