Here are a few questions and ideas to get you started thinking. I’ll include my email at the end of the FP if you feel inclined to offer up some suggestions. Get back to me ASAP, though, as things are moving fast on this cool effort.
Size: We are fairly confined to width on the site, but what is an ideal length? We would like to ensure ability to include single hand casting as well as double hand casting from some sort of side platform.
Direction: Should the pond be castable from either end, or is that annoying if it is a length where opposite casters might overlap at distance?
Access: We will likely use some sort of engineered wood to create an slightly elevated deck around the pond. What should be included to define casting stations? For single hand roll/overhead and single and double hand Spey casting.
Accessories: What are some useful things to have around on the site? Things like rod racks, benches, tables, storage shed(s), targets, etc. What else?
Distance markers: What is the best way to do distance markers?
What else? Surely I have forgotten something? What elements have you seen at a casting pond that really were useful that don’t fit the above categories?
Thanks, everyone! Please email me your advice at email@example.com
Take Care and Fish On,
