What I found works best is to really close up my grip on the rod (top hand close to the reel) and come to a very abrupt stop at the 11:00 o'clock position.
Hopefully I'll get back out after the next round of rain is over. Need more practice (and bigger fish).
Right on with the hardish stop at 11AM. That's one thing I have to drill into folks when giving a casting lesson. "Gravity Works" even on fly lines. The high stop is allow 'time' for the line to lay out before Mom Nature takes over.
