Whip the rod straight back and up with a stiff wrist, to almost the 12 o’clock position.
Give it a second to let the line straighten out behind you, then give it a forward stroke.
As you’re going forward, let the string go through your fingers.
Point rod tip at the fly in the water.
Pull more line at the bottom of the reel and do it all again.
