Default Re: "Crack" noise on either forward or backcast

Thanks Doug! To make things a little more interesting, shouldn't the forward and backcast be mirror images of one another when false casting? Do we have less problems with the forward cast because we are watching it? I only began to watch my backcast a year or so ago, after 40 plus years of fly fishing. A tape by George Roberts really emphasizes the point that if you don't make a good backcast, a good forward cast will never happen. That was also when I took my first casting lesson. Had some poor muscle memory and bad habits to correct!
