    I agree. Almost any time I find myself making poor casts, I notice that i am rushing my cast. As soon as I slow down, my casts instantly improve.

    try this.....make your backcast, then wait much longer than you need to. then little by little start your forward cast a little sooner untill you find the timing that works and gives you tight, fast loops.

    hope it helps

    Problem solved. My timing was waay off. I got my friend's dad to watch me cast, he said my timing was off and I had to cast slower. I casted 40 feet easily with a de-hooked fly.

    Just getting someone to watch can be a big help with casting, and any sports move. Glad we could help. 40 feet is enough to catch LOTS of fish.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Yeah, its an awesome feeling to feel the line just shooting our of your rod.
    And I'm gonna try it out at patapsco in the larger areas of the river in the state park.
