Default Re: single haul

I'll offer this, I think the single haul is a subtle move in casting, not the dramatic moves for the double haul, where the hands are moving all the way to the reel and back to the back pocket, but it's a tug with the left hand. a short tug and the hands go back to there normal position maintaining the rhythm and the slack between the hand and the stripping guide. (right hand casters)

My tug is about 6 inches, and then my hands follow each other back and forth in the normal rhythm of the cast. My hands never stay in one stationary position from the forward cast or the back cast but move with stroke.

Anyone have a description for the single haul they want to pass along for the new guys to give them another perspective?
