slack trapeze help

Ok, I just started learning slack tricks from Andre’s videos, but slack trapeze is giving me trouble. In the video, Andre just throws the string and it seems to just stick to the yo-yo after it hits it. So, my question is, do I actually have to throw the string right into the yo-yo or catch it from the side?

You want to throw the string around so that it follows circular path around to the yoyo. Once it gets there, you want to drop the yoyo a little bit to help the string “stick” to the yoyo. Practice will make this timing better.
