Most traditional casting instruction operates on fixed rules: hold the rod this way, put your arm or elbow here, move like this, stop here, and so on. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaworowski Took My Casting To The Next Level 7 Feb 2000
By Walter W. Hofer - Published on Amazon.com
Ed Jaworowski clearly explains why my cast sometimes falls apart and sometimes works well. In "Trouble Shooting the Cast" he demonstrates a thorough understanding of the mechanics of fly-casting and goes from there to clearly pinpoint common casting mistakes. He has done his homework well. Jaworowski identifies and analyzes over 30 common casting problems and gives clear and concise explanations for their underlying causes. He explains the relationships between one problem and another. After dealing with the fundamentals of fly-casting, Jaworowski addresses special problem areas such as casting in the wind and casting shooting heads and weighted flies and leaders.
After studying "Trouble Shooting the Cast," I find that I starting to be able to dissect my (and other's) casting mistakes by just analyzing the movement of the fly line. For instance, Jaworowski clearly explains that line oscillations in my forward cast meant I had slack in the backcast or that the end of my fly line curves to the left or right because I had misdirected hand motion at the last instant of the forward cast. Now I am able to analyze each cast and know what I need to do to correct the problem.
The illustrations in the book are barely adequate, and could be a lot better. Actual photographs contrasting the correct and incorrect casting technique might have helped.
I agree with Lefty Kreh's assessment that Ed Jaworowski is the best fly casting instructor around.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to cast correctly and fix what you're doing wrong 6 Mar 2006
By James Benenson - Published on Amazon.com
It's too bad that a book like this has to be written. Ed teaches the best method of fly casting there is, so if you read the first four pages and -> practice <- what he teaches, you'll rarely experience the 32 problems that he writes about in the rest of the book.

If you insist on using an inferior casting method and are having problems, this book is the next best thing to Ed being at your side showing what's wrong and teaching what's right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Reference for Anglers of Any Level 19 April 2002
By BP - Published on Amazon.com
This was just the book I was looking for when I had been fly fishing for a while but started running into problems with my cast. This book anticipated all of them and provides easy solutions. Some casting books make it difficult to picture what they're doing with the rod, even with pictures. "Troubleshooting the Cast" lays it out clearly. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars 77 Pages of Solid Gold 6 May 2005
By 5/0 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ed Jaworowski's "Troubleshooting the Cast" is the most valuable (and nearly the least expensive) book in my rather substantial collection of flyfishing books. Since I bought it a few years ago I've advised everyone who has asked me about flyfishing to buy this book the same day they buy their first flyrod - or sooner. Even the most impatient person in The Republic would cherish this book because - whatever is going wrong with your cast - you can find it and fix it with this book in a matter of minutes. Once the flyboy (or flygirl) has used this book enough they will be able to "read the line" and knowing what's falling apart and how to correct it starts to become second-nature. Jaworowski's book makes it downright EASY.
2.0 out of 5 stars Be careful if it's a gift 16 Dec 2013
By Tinker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Overall, this could be an excellent addition ot anyone's lirbrary EXCEPT the one I received has several missing sections. The pages are blank. You go from page 39, then tow blank pages, then page 42. Happens in several places.

After Xmas, but before things get too busy for Amazon, I'll ask for a replacement.

Look at it first if it's meant ot be a gift.
