Default Re: Side-arm cast woes -- need advice

Update: I tried the harder stops (more sudden) on both back and front casts, and noticed a HUGE difference in line speed and tighter loop on the fron cast. Great. That gives me something to work with. I also experimented with plain overhead casting, and then adding *micro hauling and got a feel for what hauling can do.

I think I at least have something to work with now....I just need a LOT more practice.

When I haul on the backcast I know I need to "wait" for the line to draw my hand back toward the reel, but sometimes I never get this pressure. Is this due to not enough "stop" on the backcast and just not enough power?

Thanks again all -- I really learn a lot by reading your posts and I enjoy the sport more every time I go out there!
