Circle up or Drift

Here is a video about the circle up or drift during the spey cast. For new casters, there is a little explanation at the end that may be helpful.

Ah, the old "dolphin nose" loop formation at 15.5 seconds and 3:15 in slow motion. It may be a "tell" related to a moment of previous excessive casting force or the result of uneven dynamic line tension (I don't claim to know for sure). If you see it, then back off a bit on the next cast and it then disappears, you may have your answer.

Pretty darn tight loops regardless, son.

And good advice to beginners-- avoid any movement in the direction of the cast that doesn't maintain or increase tension.

Great point. That first left handed cast in the video had slack and I punched it pretty hard which created a pretty sweet tailing loop in the wind!
