Not sure I get your point. In the photo the guy is using more wrist than Ru Paul. I'm pretty sure he was not advocating the swishy wrist cast.
I also understand that you can use wrist, I do, and I am sure you have seen me post this video before. This is Fredrick Hedman, who's casting makes Lefty look like a fat worm dunker.
By the way, This guy is a world class distance caster and did a 115' cast on a 3 wt., I believe in competition.

my problem is not really whether one uses the wrist or not as long as the cast is efficient. It is in telling beginners not to bend the wrist when the natural tendency is to bend the wrist.
Like I said, he's probably avoiding the floppy cast because as YOU said, he advocates a lack of wrist. As I said, "If you get your thumb in the way and don't bend your wrist
you can't get it back past 2 oclock. I rotate my rod and have a V grip going back and end with more of a thumb on top. What does Lefty have to say about that?
