RE:Drop cast

I use a similar technique to cut down on false casting. I'll make a short forward cast and let it sit in the water for a second before making my backcast. When I make the backcast the rod loads nicely and I can put a lot of line in the air for my final cast. I think this is similar to the process for the two handed overhead cast. In any case I can make a decently long cast with only two strokes that involve any real effort.
