Casting for Recovery has a deep meaning for me, as I am a cancer survivor, and know the mental and physical struggle that it takes to stay the course. So working with those of you who have had cancer or have cancer is one of the greatest privileges that I have to share my passion for teaching.
Each year I try to support Casting for Recovery any way that I can. This year we will have a dedicated Day on the River for Casting for Recovery. The Federation of Fly Fishers holds a deep respect for all those who fly fish, with Casting for Recovery and Project Healing Waters at the forefront of our thoughts and prayers.
Please check out the upcoming 2012 Womens Fly Fishing School for Casting for Recovery, on their blog at http://cfrriverrunanglers.blogspot.com/.

Whether single or Two handed fly rod the SLP is made by moving the rod butt up in the back cast and down in the forward cast. In doing so you are making an adjustment to accommodate the rod getting shorter from the bend (Load) in the rod.
I have looked at a lot of videos and pictures trying to depict the SLP of a two handed rod.
The following picture is as good as it gets.
Note the bend at the top hand to the tip, this allows for a tremendous rod loading and generates the line speed needed to form a very efficient loop.
Also note the bend between the top and bottom hand.
One of these is "How the caster forms his loop." and the
second is "How well does the caster maintain the straight line path of the rod tip?".
