    Looking forward to try to cast this way. I wasn’t aware of the moving the forearm forward before laying the line down, i have just pick up and lay down, so i hope this will bring me sucess 🙂

    Excellent job! Great camera angles. Thanks much for posting.
    Two things: 1) I wish I could see the line better in front of you when you cast (lots to do with youtube graphics), and 2) listeners should not fret; like anything else, it takes practice, practice, practice 🙂
