Default "Five Essentials of the Fly Cast"

I can't remember if I posted this link before on this forum or not, but I keep seeing the same questions about casting asked all the time and thought I'd post it again if I haven't already.

Virtual Fly Casting - Instruction - The 5 Essentials

There are good animations linked to in blue on each numbered essential. If I knew how to make animations I'd add a bunch of them myself, showing what happens when you violate on the the essentials, which I do often enough to know exactly what in fact happens (especially the numerous ways to throw tailing loops).

If the essentials are followed in a single-handed overhead cast, the results will be beautiful. Understanding exactly what is supposed to be done is the first step, in my opinion, in being able to analyse what I am doing wrong in the cast so that I can fix it.

The site has a lot of great information gathered from the most proficient casters ever, and is a good one to explore.

I would think links to it and other specific pages on other sites might be good for a sticky.

Cheers,
Jim
