Smile Tight Loops

Hello All,

I was practicing my casting this afternoon, and I made some observations. Try these tips; they improved my casting.

1) With the line straight on the lawn (or water) make a quick backhaul while pulling the rod behind you.

2) When you feel the line "tug" (with the hand holding the the flyline) start the foward cast.

These 2 steps do two things : They increase line speed, and create tighter loops!

It helped me. I experimented. Try it.
