For most expert casters, a single haul comes naturally: they do it almost unconsciously, sometimes very subtly, adding it as one more motion that increases their feel for the line. The double haul, of course, contributes greatly to line speed and is commonly used to counter the effects of wind and to shoot line. But its use extends to even short casts and windless days.
This week Joan Wulff demonstrates an easy method for learning the Double Haul, using an overhead camera to show when and how fast to move the line hand during the casting stroke.
