    Amazing video! Thank you for sharing! But for a newbie (still waiting to take a casting class in the Spring), what was the purpose of the double flip like casts that she was making? The first flip seemed to bring the fly back to close to her, then the second put it where she wanted it. Is it because of insufficient room to backcast?

    She was using a two handed rod. The length of the rod, type of line, and extra leverage allows you to make a cast with no backcast of false casting. Most commonly known as Spey Casting

    Thank you. Swirlchaser! I knew that it was nothing that I had seen in my reading and instructional materials on basic casting. I'll stick to learning and mastering basic casting before concern myself with moving up to "advanced" rods and techniques!

    Any time. It's actually no harder than casting single hand. I just wouldn't advise you try to learn them both at the same time.
