How to use "Swoop" in context?

One of the most important words in fly fishing is swoop. Swooping is when you make a large, quick movement of the fly rod to cast the fly. The purpose of swooping is to move the fly quickly out of the path of the birds and into their strike zone. Here are some tips to help you swoop effectively:

1. Always start swooping before you lift the rod off the ground. This way, the movement will be more effective and the fly will be in the strike zone sooner.

2. Make a wide, sweeping motion with the rod. Don't try to spin the fly rod like a propeller.
