The Snap
In order to get that extra few feet of distance, we need the leader to extend straight and true. The final tug of the line when the forward cast is almost fully extended and the line straightens is critical.
Strip enough shooting line into your basket so that the line just snaps tight to the reel at the end of your cast. This shock is sent to the leader, shooting it straight and turning the fly over.
Strip out too much line, and your cast might go limp. Too little line will result in too much of a shock and your line may actually spring back toward you.
