Re: casting techniques
The twisting the fly line is a new one on me, when I fish with dry flies I do enough false casting to keep the fly dry. If fishing wet flies I keep the false cast to a minimum.
You know, if you have enough room for a back cast I often get my distance squared away by casting somewhere to the right or left of where I want to place the fly. When doing this I can thrash around as much as needed and when there is enough line out to hit my mark I then shift the direction on the last set of back & forward cast. This keeps the whole process away from where you either know or believe the fish are at. Where there is a will there's a way....................
