FKrow Stop the rod higher on the backcast and forward cast. The over bending of the wrist on the back cast is very common,,,,almost all new FF have a problem with this initially.

Try and keep the wrist straight and not allow it to pivot at the end of your cast.

juro Great animation - except we'd slow it down and make it a four count instead of a two-count. The angler in this animation is casting as if each stroke was "one-two, one-two". It should be "one-and-two-and, one-and-two-and" where each "and" is a distinct pause at the end of each stroke (back or forth) to allow the line to straighten out before going in the other direction.

Otherwise nice little animation and no, the line is not supposed to touch down behind you.

Simply put it should look something like this. Good suggestion Juro slowed it down a little.

Fly casting 101

I've recently began the quest of learning how to fly fish.

My question is, when you cast a line is the line and fly suppose to touch the ground behind you where your casting?

Take for example, I'm casting in my backyard, is it proper for the line or fly to touch the grass behind me if I'm casting overhead or sidearm or is the fly and line supposed to remain in the air until it reaches the surface of the water where I want it to land?

Thank you.
