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.
