casting-far left, far right

If anyone is having the same problem of getting their fly over to the left as I was having on the first pool of the Highlands Challenge, here's a tactic I came upon out of frustration ( getting one fly over in 20 minutes!).
After lengthening your line and while it is still in the air, give it a hard snap and a twist into the direction you want the fly to go. You don't always get a gentle landing but the fly gets there! I had someone else test this too--and it works!
Fly fishing is not a matter of life and death--it's more important than that!
