Description: also known as bucket cast (Mac Brown) and hump cast (Jason Borger). You throw line under the lower leg of the loop and its weight collapses a segment of line, making it fall in a heap (intentional rat's nest.)
Use: place slack line a specific distance from the rod tip and have it fall in a heap in very little space. One of the best slack line casts for fishing the water upstream.
Execution: after the stop, an upwards flick of the wrist (tip of the thumb pointing up) and back down puts a vertical curve into the line that travels below the line until it falls.
If it doesn't come out right, it's because...
- The flick isn't absolutely vertical and you open your wrist to one side (the heap won't fall into a bucket)
- The rod tip doesn't end up pointing downwards after the flick of the wrist
"Fly-fishermen are of three types, conscious casters, non-conscious casters and non-interested casters."
Observe the "rat's nest" you get as the line piles up. It should all fit in a bucket according to Marc.
