"D Loop" is the common name for the big loop of line that forms beneath the rod tip and behind the caster during a Spey cast. It is called this because it looks like a big uppercase letter D. Recently some casters have begun to use the term "V Loop" to denote a very dynamic version of the D Loop. A "V Loop" looks sort of like this:

and it is a very aerodynamic and powerful version of the D loop, especially useful for distance Spey casting.



Here is an article on D Loops that you might find helpful.

And here is a video clip of a 'V' Loop. Play it Full Screen so you can see it more clearly.

Dana what always impresses me is not only the revealing tips you have to offer in but also how extremely well you are able to put it in words!

Thanks once again dude.

Really like the videos. I watch them over and over and pick up new details every time. Amazing how smooth you make the cast look. I have a tendancy to nod forward on the delivery and have been trying to stop that problem.

Thanks for the videos...

Cheers,
