I'm continuing to self teach skagit in the surf. I have no still water around me and I'm don't think grass at the park works for waterborne casts. That means I'm learning in the waves. I'm making progress my casts are pretty nice but I'm trying to get more consistency. I need help understanding the anchor. I have difficulty seeing where my anchor/leader lands in the waves and it is moving at wave speed. For various casts like single spey or switch the anchor touches down at particular places before the forward cast and be optimized. Maybe if I had still water and could see what was going on I could answer my own question. But at this time every time I go out I have a new question. What effects the position of the anchor during the various casts? Is failure to get the anchor in the right spot based more often on how much head is out (physically too much line out) or more of a set-up failure (moving improperly like dipping rod tip) , or rod tempo (too fast set-up breaking the anchor)?
