Casting Is Counterintuitive

“A good fly cast is counterintuitive. Our natural tendency is to wave the rod through a wide arc when casting. Perhaps the most challenging part of the cast is resisting the temptation to do this. In the beginning you’ll have to “stop short”, particularly during the backcast. In most casting, doing less with the rod usually means getting more from the cast.”
