Default Re: Roll casting help needed

I was taught by two well known fishermen for their roll cast.
First off, there is adjustments for nymphing and dry. Dry will be easier because the fly is on the top of the water already. Nymphing you have to speed up a little to get the fly to the surface.
Lift your rod and arm straight up till the line is even with or slightly behind your body. Then with force, point to where you want the line to go with a kaboom feel.
I can do this with a 2wt to a 6wt and with my bamboo very easy. I have heard that DT is suppose to be easier, but I do well with both DT and WF.
I learned from Eddie Robinson and Mike Pawlaski.
This will make it easy.
Also, you cannot practise a roll cast properly without water.
