Default Re: A recent problem in my casting

There is certainly a debate about how long a caster should haul. Lefty Kreh advocates using a short haul. IMHO, this is fine for most fishing situations. To achieve maximum distance, however, a caster must use a long haul. (All the tournmament casters do.)

I do not believe a properly executed long haul causes tailing loops.

Certainly when false casting into a strong wind I use a short haul as it will be impossible to execute an upward haul without adding slack.

On my presentation cast into a wind I'll use a long downward haul.
