There are a number of guys here who love helping other anglers, and are happy to give advice. I encourage anyone who uses this forum to post their questions. That's a big part of the reason this community exists.
Thing about learning to cast via video is like trying to teach yourself how to swing a Golf club. On the face of it, pretty easy to do, but the reality is quite something different.
Real 'problem' as I see it is half of a one hander cast is 'behind you' where you really have to struggle to watch same. And its the back cast is where most of the problems occur.
Only type of fly casting that vid's can actually be quite helpful is with a 2hander rod. Reason for that is almost all of the cast is out over the water so you can actually 'watch' what's going on. Something goes wrong with the cast there's only one or two things that will 'cause' the flub.
Once you get that down, then its pretty easy to adjust.
