Default Re: Distance casting summary by Mike Heritage

Here's my two cents: As he is executing his upward haul he begins his forward cast. I don't see how the rod will begin loading with his line hand moving upward. In fact, I see some slack forning in the line between his hands.

For the rod to load during our forward cast - even if we're not hauling - our line hand must be moving downward. (This will keep slack out of the line.)

On my presentation cast I find it's okay to finish the downward haul a bit late, but on my false casts, if I finish my downward haul late I will not be able to finish my upward haul with my line hand at the same level as my rod hand, then there's a good chance I'll begin my fowrad cast before I begin moving my line hand downward.
