Default Re: Casting Tangles?

What you're suggesting sounds like it could also be called a water haul in combination with a single haul. The surface tension of the water is used to load the rod (water haul) on the forward stroke and the single haul ("Strip A little Line") adds to the load of the rod.

I'm sure this works very well in some situations, but might take some practice. I say that because if you load the rod with the water haul, let it unload, and then attempt to load it again with the haul/strip, the cast could get ugly. As is the case with any fly cast, try to make the application of power on the cast as smooth as possible.
