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



It does! Don't get me wrong, you aren't going to add 50' to your cast like this but you can add a bit of distance and make things a bit on the easier side.

As for "why" it works - not 100% sure on that. I think, at least in my case, I tend to have more power/line speed on my backcast than I do on my front cast. I basically use the wind to equalize that. The wind carries line further on my "forward" cast and I generate enough power in my "backcast" to deliver the fly.
