Casting Progress

Casting Progress

Glenda | Tuesday, 28 July 2015

My casting progress is not going as well as I had hoped. I am frustrated and feeling useless especially when it comes to the double haul.

casting2 It is hard to ensure you are not picking up any mistakes that could become irreversible unless there is someone there, at least once per fortnight, weekly would be better, giving you a lesson, advising correct methods and helping progress.

I have decided the method via video with the Casting Instructor is not going to work on me because he now has a new and worthy student, besides which he is also living in a dangerous Jungle!!

So, I will find a person here in Queensland who will be able to be on hand and teach me.  Mike from the Board once mentioned he is always offering casting lessons but I haven't been able to get there due to hospital or helping out at Gavin's shop.  I am hoping Mike will still be able to find time in his busy schedule to offer again (yes, this is a hint Mike :-)))) )

Video this week is titled Saltwater Fly Casting on the Flats - the Quick Cast.  Looks like something I would make a mess of but I guess with all else, practise make perfect.  Otherwise, I can see the benefits.

have a great week!
