Change that from " fool" to "Rookie"...
It's OK, everyone's done it. Some have been luckier, that's all.
Dec pretty much describes where the rod tip should be half way through the cast BUT here's the thing - you need to always know where that fly is from the time you start your cast until the end. Otherwise it's only a matter of time and you will be talking about picking your presentation out of your jaw bone! Or worse.
So regardless of what you are doing, watch that fly! When that becomes second nature your rod tip as well as your face will never get in the way.
