The Bucket Mend
The bucket mend is similar to the Aerial mend but the slack is thrown in the vertical plane rather than the horizontal plane
To perform the bucket mend, move the rod tip up then down after the final forward cast stop. This is like a vertically oriented aerial mend.
This is a great technique for downstream drag-free presentations or whenever you need a lot of slack in one small area, like small back eddies.
Advantages: Lots of slack in a small area.
Disadvantages: Difficult to place slack accurately.
