I have seen the animation (Migg is a fisherman on occasion) and believe the intent was to imitate a casting motion, albeit not very convincingly. I believe the frequency of casting needs to be greatly reduced, and interspersed with motions of pulling the line in and releasing, but when fishing the rod is mostly static, so only minor movement would be required. That may be something to consider for the PS Unreal animations.

Excuse me, that is called fly-fishing and it's a very fine art.

Indeed it is, but the way I understand it, you have to cast your line, then pull in the slack as it gets carried by the river, trying to lure a fish before you recast again. Something tells me that if you were to constantly cast, never letting the line rest, no fish would ever take your bait. The animation needs more variety to become more believable.
