Default Re: throwing tailing loops like crazy

Sounds like you're working too hard. "the harder I double haul"...double hauling is fairly effortless...you don't need to be yanking incredibly on the line. You need to be timing your pull on each aspect of the cast. A suggestion...slow down in practice. When you get a cast that gets it, stop and think about what you did on that cast to make it right. don't just keep flailing away out there. Stop and analyze each cast. What went right, what went wrong? Keeping your elbow in close to your body may not be the best thing when casting bigger line weights, especially into the wind.

The Loomis Crosscurrent demands really good timing. Again, I'd slow the practice sessions down, and get that timing right.
