I think it can be either a horizontal or vertical loop, depending on the exact tip path when you twist the wrist.
Agreed, but he does it at the end of the Stroke.

For this "Hook- Cast", I move the rod forwards about 30° from the vertical.
Just at the end of the Stroke comes the quick inward twist of the hand !

At the beginning, the loop ist more a vertical, but on the way forwards more and more horizontal.

I can make the twist also slightly upward.
Then the leader and fly hook out and upward.
The result ist a leader- parachute to the left.

Curves are fun but a bit of casting geek masturbation. Which means they're not often used in fishing situations an the discussion's mostly about dividing different curves into different categories. So, since I'm a casting geek here's my way of trying to place each curve into an adequate category;

1. Power application - under and over powered curves (positive and negative)


2. Non straight tip path - I call 'em 'hook casts'. An exaggerated pronation or supination prior to stop (positive and negative curves)

3. Combinations of casts and mends (Borgers Cork Screw) - works both ways


4. Snap Cast curve - for me this is really a cast of its own even though its done after the stop ( hence a mend by def)

Only The Over Powered curve and the corkscrew manage to go around corners, at least from how I know them.

Of course there will be opponents but please don't mess with my circles ;)

Hi Lasse, nice vid. Yep, looks like it, not the easiest curve i'd say though. Thx :)

Cheers, Staffan

Staffan!

I used to think so too, but not any more! I absolutely use them while fishing. Overpowered for bass, asp, pike, trout, snakehead in the last year or two. Countless times for bass. "Underpowered" - quotation marks because it relates to the result/shoulder only - for downstream presentations for trout and similar river fish, also for fishing the eyes of pools (occasionally).

4 goes around corners, but you need to reverse the loop. Ie throw a horizontal loop off RHS and snap it left by snapping right to hook left etc. I rarely use this one because it's more inclined to turn over more than 90, and less than 90 is preferable most of the time.

This for me is an extremely useful fishing cast. Wiggle Mend I would agree with you, Pile Cast too, but overpowered casts? I need those!

Cheers, Paul
