“No matter what you think ”advanced fly casting” entails, make no mistake: it is from the devilish details that make up the basic stroke that truly masterful fly casting emerges. No fly-fisher can hope to master the fly rod without first mastering the basic stroke. In some ways, no fly-fisher ever really moves beyond the fundamentals.”
Master the Cast
George V. Roberts Jr.

Whatever the technique you are using or distance you are fishing at, if things go wrong get back to the basics! Something I have repeated to myself during my practice this morning.
