Nothing better than practice, but a Birds eye view with a GoPro illustrating your pickup and delivery might help. I鈥檓 not a big fan of the GOPros, crap imo. Hopefully there is something better out there.
I鈥檝e noticed the importance of a strong body rotation right after the pickup (lift) reserving( enabling) the arms to be somewhat neutral and get into the proper position for maximum power and efficiency for the forward cast. I am armzy and after watching proper technic realize my torso turn is gonna be key to my progression. Doesn鈥檛 help my back is shot after 35 of carpentry I also need a river a lot closer than 6 hr round trip. A backho and a glacier is on my wishlist
Thanks Bruce
Sean

It鈥檚 not in the hips or the torso 馃槒
I鈥檝e done these ones already of the birdseye view of the lifts and of the cast itself is there anything more specific you would want from those?

Bruce if you had a drone with a camera that could take overhead shots of the lift turn and cast it would be great
That will be happening on the new series I鈥檓 doing for Swingthefly this spring

Tricks on how to get farther casts, casting 60' + lines from above waist deep water.
Thanks!
Well distance is a by product of good casting there really are no tricks other than putting the time in to get better and using mono 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔

Bottom hand engagement on the backstroke / back cast.
How much and when to use it and what happens when you don't use the bottom hand on the back cast.
Use enough to keep tension not anymore this one should help but will be covered more on the upcoming series on Swingthefly

Thanks Bruce, I have seen this video before and somehow forgot about it. Appreciate you reposting. Thanks for taking the time to help all of us with casting issues.

Absolutely agree! Thanks for the help as always! But since you asked, I wouldn't mind seeing more videos of good casters casting longer lines from the deep!
Appreciate the vids you and others put out there already. Such a great resource to learn from. Looking forward to seeing more!
Always fun!

Tournament style casting would be cool! Just to show people the madness. I handed my tournament rod to a guy and it just popped his eyes.

Maybe another video just explaining your fishing theory. You've got the long one with Tim regarding the fine and far off methodology but one where you go into some detail on the why's and how's of that fishing style would be interesting.

Thanks for all the help with the PM's and videos Bruce!

Too true!

I've watched so many Spey o Rama videos! Mind boggling watching those guys lay out huge casts. Especially when they all do it slightly different. Everyone's got their own little quirk that makes the cast uniquely their own. Same cast, but style points gotta go to Zack. Buttery smooth.
