  1. "What happens is that by using that second hand you are adding speed to your line. The rod is loaded more deeply, and that transfers to greater energy in your line. And you need high line speed for longer casts, or for casting into wind. Let me show you the difference between using the haul, and not using the haul.”

  2. "Drag is that motion that makes the fly look as if it is a water-skier instead of a free-floating insect, and it's caused by the currents that work on the line and leader."

  3. “Fly casting is the back-and-forth motion of the forearm and hand within the up-and-down motion of the whole arm. The wrist moves from bent down to straight. The forearm comes back in line with the upper arm. And the elbow lifts and lowers, to engage that upper arm action. It’s an overall acceleration to a stop.”

  4. “After you’re lined up with your target cast, there will be two parts to the cast. The first part is movement of the whole arm, just the way it is — static. Nothing changes. No extension. You’re rocking from the shoulder.”

  5. “We end the stroke while the line unrolls, and we reposition our hand and put it down again. So it’s a rotation: the elbow goes out, the hand goes across, or on a backcast the elbow goes in and the hand goes across.”
