Default Mulson Wind Cast

Recently read Fly Casting Finesse by John Field.
Which, by the way is a great book
One of the passages mentions the Mulson Wind Cast, which seems to defy the laws of physics when casting into the wind. The diagram appears to throw a big D loop into wind with the line tracking into the water along the way.

The book mentions Prescott Smith's video as a similarity, but I disagree. Prescott really just demonstrates Belgian Oval Cast.

Some of the sources I have managed to locate are:
1) http://www.fcff.org/pdf/The%20Mulson...%20Version.pdf
2)http://www.wildoutfitting.com/mci/em.../msg00629.html

I really would someday like to see a video demonstration of the thing...as reading about casting and watching are clearly two different things.

Thanks,
DMK

First I wanted to figure out the descriptions I read, then try to do it. Then try to video it. I bought the question was very interesting. It just seems like you would have to really slap the water with the lower loop. I bet Paul on sexyloops can. They are all really informative over there, very helpful.

I wonder how much leader you can lay out with it. On a windy coast or bay with 20 or 30 blowing, it would beat kicking the line off the boat deck. Lol.
