bow & arrow cast

I always held the hook in my hand, the bend between thumb & forefinger, but saw Joe Humphries (or one of those guys out of Penn State) make a couple of loops in the tippet, pinch the loops and let it go that way. A great video about small stream fishing.

I think that is a superior method, maybe less chance of embedding the hook in the finger or hand.
