I think that once you get it into your head that the rod is an extension of your arm and the line goes where you point the rod, you can make nearly any cast you can imagine.
And the way to do that is with practical experience as in "time on the water"
Couldn't agree more. My backyard casting isn't good. I'm much better on the water. I can't explain it. It just is.
