  1. Near the end of his video, Ian says “the upper hand always tracks down to initiate loading the rod, never out” (at least that’s what I think he said).

    I’ve seen several instructors give the same advice, but have never read a satisfactory explanation as to why this is required or why the term “always” is stressed. It may be that the motion clears a path for the loop? I would welcome a conclusive answer.
