Re: Casting question
This thread has gotten a lot of viewing in just a few short days. It makes me feel like there may be others who need the same or similar help with their fly cast.
I realize that it may be difficult for someone to troubleshoot your cast without actually seeing you do it. However, Doug Macnair is as good as anyone when comes to troubleshooting and he does a magnificent job of doing it online.
After responding to crday's post, Doug received an email from Dave. They have both agreed to allow me to share that message with the rest of the forum. It goes like this...

You are a genius.
I got the casting book online yesterday and read the first part and practiced this morning with my Sage 8 wt. Xi2 and threw 75' no leader just fly line (measured with a tape) with tight loops and no tailing loops at all, with way less effort.
I'm ecstatic! This is what I needed.
Doug, thanks for helping Dave out. Thanks for helping us all out. If more people would commit to your recommendations and practice, we would see a whole bunch of them become better casters
