Mechanics

Some good things to remember for those of us refining our technique (constantly)

I have days for whatever reason where my cast just doesn't come together until I break down every step to figure out what I'm not doing correctly. It's usually being lazy or impatient.

Hope it helps


Enjoy!

Very good points made. Dec Hogan wrote about the importance of both hands always pulling line instead of pulling with the top hand and pushing [the rod] with the bottom. He says "You can't push a rope - " because "- nothing happens." So - pull line with the bottom and pull line with the top anytime that you "are moving line" not just for the delivery cast as pointed out in the vid.

The lift and how it is executed is of huge importance , especially during the single spey, double, and circle spey. With poorly executed lift I find myself playing catch-up. In other words I avoid making up for bad lift. I see a lot of this catching-up out there.

Good vid. Good points. Thanks for sharing.

I think there are three or four videos in this series, and all are great tutorials. Thanks.

Hi Yoda

How are you?

There are more videos and all equally enjoyable

I just didn't want to risk being gratuitous

Great, thanks J.

For me it is even more than just getting the steps correct. It is often the spaces between the steps where I struggle for consistency.

Somebody smarter than me said "The bricks in the wall are important, but so is the mortar"...

Thanks for posting that video. I could have certainly used it earlier today.
