First "style" is made crap staccato intentionally since it has been sold here as the be all and end all of all you need in fly-fishing, and that it is the most energy efficient way of casting....
Not quite sure what you mean here, having trouble understanding
Staccato to me (being a musician) means detached or short/sharp. It's a little '.' above a note(s)
All the best
And that's just what I am doing, pronounced detached/sharp movements, instead of a smooth transition, and yet it's proclaimed favorite because it's been repeated again and again as the only way...5 is much smoother, and relaxed, and yield a much higher line velocity as evident in the biggest rebound of all the casts, and yet it feels much slower and less forceful.. But has been ridiculed and is said to be not for fishing
jumping jack style etc....
And in the end, all 5 reach 90 feet easily. ..
Jasons latest book is superb, that and Joan's flycasting technique are the top volumes in our niche pasttime if you ask me, and that's not because I'm mentioned in Jasons
