Default Re: Roll cast question

For me one of the biggest problems with roll casting is maintaining line tension, or keeping slack out of the line. To help me do this I use my finger to hold the line against the rod handle. When I stop the rod at the end of the forward cast I release the line. Also, I begin my forward cast just before my fly stops moving. I want my loop to be in the shape of an oval (or a D-loop.) If I wait to long my line loses the shape.
