why? is it because im not making a hard stop on my front cast?
Probably. You also, probably, are not accelerating sharply into a "power snap" just before the crisp stop - in BOTH directions back cast And forward cast. The fly rod should not look like windshield wipers on 220 volts.

If you spent a half hour with a good casting instructor, your casting distance would probably triple and you would be using a quarter the effort.

The internet is indeed magical - for finding 20 year old washing machine agitators. But not so good for diagnosing a casting problem that every single person who first picks up a fly rod has - one which can have nearly an infinite number of causes.
