When teaching single hand casting that is one of the first lessons we had to impart on the students - almost without exceptions beginners think they have to throw the line. All they the have to do is come forward and STOP the rod and the rod does all the work!!

You are right - it is really amazing how little effort is needed to cast a relatively long line - it is truly technique and not muscle. That being said, to throw a really long line like the guys in the casting competitions, it is going to take some effort to move all that line but still technique is sure key to doing it gracefully!
