I've seen all casting divided into 2 broad categories:
  1. overhead cast: line is aerialized on both back cast and forward cast
  2. roll cast: line forms a loop beneath and behind rod tip on back cast

overhead includes all forms and presentation casts; roll includes "dead line" and "live line" roll casts such as spey casting and all variants (skagit, underhand, etc).

Juro, maybe we should make this a "video glossary" rather than just text...
