Thank you for the great and detailed advice. I'll have to pay more attention to exactly what I'm doing and also see if I can get some video to post. I don't have any problem putting video onto a public post. The help is great.
One of the few things that my cast has going for it is I'm anchoring up in a good position. Now that I'm thinking about everything though, as I sweep I have a tendency to bring that rod tip up way too soon. I imagine that would make it difficult for the line to form a d-loop behind me, and would form it over to my side. Hmmm, I wonder if that's it? It is certainly something to work on either way.
I'll start with that and also pay close attention to my forward cast. I'll give an update after I get out on the water. Thanks again. I really appreciate it!
