you might want to shoot it right at the stop. "Stop and let go".
Then try to release it even a bit earlier and see what happens. ;)

When shooting line, I would say get rid of the stop thinking! Release in steadt... Cast relaxed and easy, do not use any force, release the line a splitsecond before you would usually make a stop = straight underline, long cast, pointed loop, straightened leader, no tailing loops... If you try, rel...

Throwing Lee's supercharged shooting head I can see Rasmus' argument a little better. With that gear I'm hauling through the first half of the Casting Stroke, instead of the second half, and releasing early. Cheers, Paul Thank you... ! (Releasing with no stop takes some serious timing compared to s...

Hi Lasse, Yes i do and i actually believe that stopping the haul is deceleration enough to create very nice loops almost regardless of what the rod does at that moment. The problem is that people usually think that i've finally lost my mind whenever i mention this.  :(  :D Now that you're asking, i...

The "Rio Versitip Scandinavian Spey" shooting head and tips has been my favourite when 2-handcasting for years now. Works perfect, with all tips when you want to fish the fly under the surface...

Works perfect with "cast & Release"
Thank you !

Broke the old rod when landing a 5 kilo salmon in difficult conditions in a small spate river, borrowed a new faster rod, and it works fine with "Cast & Release"... The guy i borrowed it from is also using the same technique, his two friends make a stop, but they think he has a better cast  ;) (4 s...

Keep it low or horizontal (follow with the rod... drift ?) in the backcast and release the line high/early in the the front cast (without a stop), if you want to shoot line in a relaxed and easy way (without a tailing loop)...

1: I wrote quite early in this thread that I think releasing about when the line has the biggest velocity in one direction would be the best, and I still think so. 2: Btw, using Jim's contraption has hammered it in that we cannot see when the line is released since the fingers only have to come 0.0...

Releasing the line at RSP. and not to mention before RSP, is in my opinion something that a lot of us think we do. Releasing before RSP is a very strange feeling. Most of us haul through the stop. Just try it,and make sure you really relase before RSP. It is not as easy as it seems. Cheers Tom. Rel...

p.s. Have worked quiet a bit on "early release". Defintely very interesting stuff. As you wrote takes time to change technique but it's well worth giving it a try! Thank you! Changing the technique/release timing is almost impossible for some, and takes a lot of time for others... But it really wor...
