10 & 2 are a Little Too Late
“10 and 2 is too little too late” – As we have heard from the beginning of our fly casting learning curve, our cast is to be imagined as if your rod moves along an imaginary clock face, with the forward cast stopping at 10 o’clock, and the backcast stopping at 2 o’clock.
In reality, when we start casting, we are pretty much oblivious to this imaginary clock. It is advised to instead change the time zones to one o’clock on the backcast.
If you try changing your way of thinking to “10 to 1” you may have better luck.
