You are correct young lady. Lefty IS a gentleman, even to other men. I'm sure you've heard his joke...
"Have you ever watched your back cast?"

Student, "Nope."

"If I had a back cast like yours I wouldn't watch it either!"

The entire crowd haw-haws with laughter. The point is... when you are laughing at yourself, you will never forget what the man says. It certainly doesn't hurt to turn to look at your back cast once in a while to see the timing of the line. It's one of the ways to learn the rod you are using, and as a beginner, learn the "feel" of the rod. I know he taught me!
