|Suggested options--choose one or any combination:|
watch Mel Krieger's videos and practice the hand movement without a rod in your hand.("repeat after me:downup")
practice with a soft rod so you can feel the load and watch the line unroll on the backcast
pay for a lesson or two with a good patient instructor
for me the trick was forcing the line hand upwards to the same level as the rod hand after the initial haul on the backcast-without that,obviously, there's no leverage to haul on the forward cast-that's why i liked Mel's practice routine without the rod-after a while it becomes muscle memory..
