Default Paint brush fly casting

I've written many times about using a a paint brush to teach the acceleration and the hard stop/microwrist flick in fly casting. I've done it on several posts but this is the main one.

casting problems

Tim Rajeff explains the use of the paint brush in this must see video:

Big thanks. I can not open the links from where I am, but when I am in the USA I will. Appreciate the information and your effort.

Fly fishing is such an interesting hobby. There are so many aspects. At first casting was critical, but after gaining a basic level, I have rather ignored the issue. My basic abilities have seemed to suffice.

Maybe time to reconsider...but there are those trial leaders to tie, those darn difficult 22 parachutes to master, those full flex rods to play with, etc.

What fun!

Cheers
