As a newbie to archery I have been having trouble with the arrow coming off the rest. Just found this old thread and look forward to trying a deep hook with relaxed wrist and hand to rotate the arrow into the shelf. Thanks everybody!

If you grab the string up on the middle of the second phalange of the middle finger and let it roll in the crease between 1st and 2nd phalanges while drawing (deep hook)  the string rolling movement through arrow nock will push the arrow secure against the bow shelf.
PS This rolling happens in first inches of draw or it can be done right before drawing, when you position the string on your "deep hook". I prefer to do it before drawing, but to each his own.

Actually, by doing it the correct way, you can reverse cant and keep the arrow on the shelf. [/b]
OK but I think I'll keep canting to the right.  Of course a proper hook does the trick.

I used this today. Made the process much more streamlined as I was using my bow hand index finger to correct the arrow when it occasionally moved. More repeatable bow hand as a result.
