Dana hit the nail on the head SLACK is what I see as the number one casting fault I have observed.
So if slack it the number one fault how dose it get there?
Better yet how do we keep it out and keep out to the cast.

Slack

Removing slack is the quest of all fly fishers be it single- or double-handed dudes and dudettes. Books, DVD, Videos Clinics, Clave and the list goes on are all pointed at removing slack. :rolleyes: Now my feeble attempt to shorten the long subject: "Tempo and Timing" with the correct "applied effort" within the "casting motion" is the goal to remove slack. Tempo= smooth acceleration; Timing= when to start the next element of the casting stroke; applied effort= the energy transferred to the rod in each element of the casting stroke; and, casting stroke= the entire motion of co-ordinated body movements (arms, hands and body) to deliver energy to the rod.
