This sounds really intriguing...does it really work? How can it be any different than the forward cast?

I take it you would use a side-arm approach along with this...

A roll cast also works pretty well.
I tried the roll cast. No workie. I know part of it is because I am not the greatest caster.


But, to what swilcaster said, short casts "sort of" worked and, by seeing those flies fall like leaves on the water, I didn't need to go very far from shore.
