As I see two-handed rod casting, everyone is forming some kind of delta-wedge type D loop behind them with an anchor a rod and half off the casters shoulder to do their spey type cast (switch, single, double, snake etc.). This presents a big problem when I have obstacles beside, behind, directly overhead of me. In these situations, D-loops of any sort are troubling. All these casts are based on the 180 degree D-loop. Is there some way to make the cast without a large-behind-you D-loop? I can do the "Perry Poke" but it still is basically a sweep to a 180 degree loop and if somethings overhead ---ooch. I enjoy the challenge of making long cast, but I find myself in more restricted casting positions where the brush, trees, back-against-rock walls are my challange. Fish don't always lie in perfect long-cast-lies situations. I find more times they are where my casting position is highly restricted. Just cursious to see how other fishers handle these fishing situations.
