Types of Casts
Is there anywhere online that I can read something about the various types of casts... i.e. Shadow cast, roll cast, etc.?

Hi Surfin,

Try these three links. They may have something you are interested in. Your best approach is to purchase a casting video. The videos cover all of the cast and you can see them in action. I highly recommend the video by Lefty Kreh.

Re: Types of Casts
thanks for the links. I appreciate it. As I sitting through there and watching the animation of the shadow cast, I got a good idea. I went to google video and searched casting lesson. I found a bunch of tutorials that give detailed instruction on Back Casts, Roll casts, and some variations.

Here is one I found particularly helpful.

Back Cast
