ALVIN DEDEAUX: That abrupt stop on the back
cast, it basically just means everything stops whether you’re doing it on the back cast or
the forward cast. Once you’ve done your loading move and your power snap, there’s no more
backward motion after that. You’re going to just come to a complete stop here, pause,
while you let the line roll out behind you. And then same thing on the forward cast, you’d
come forward stop and pause and there’s–that’s what we’re talking earlier about the abrupt
stop that makes a fly cast a little bit different. And the abrupt stop is really important because
the more abrupt that you make that stop the more power it’s going to put in the line.
It’s not really so much how hard and fast you do the rest of the cast as it is how abruptly
you make that stop. And the pause is basically just letting that line straighten out before
you make your next cast.
