Re: It's starting to "click"
Right On! I learned a lot from a Professional caster and narrowed it down to three things to teach my clients for basic casting.1. Think - hammering a nail in the wall (you don't break your wrist doing that, right!)2. Imagine an invisable shelf, you are running your hand along this shelf (now you are not doing the windshield wiper thing and creating smaller loops)3. For distance casting, think about throwing a ball. To throw to someone in right in front of you requires very little arm movement. Now imagine throwing that ball across the park, you put your whole arm into it. Watch a distance caster. You will see that their whole arm is extended on both front and back casts.
