I can't understand why some folks think a drink can is harder to carry out when it is empty than it was to carry in when it was full.

Tim, they are very good but on "scissor lesson" there comes a fault! After the back cast stop the rod tip should not be lifted because it cause the Tailing Loop when a long cast is done! Similar mistake the Ian Cordon video has which you posted few days ago. Lifting the rod tip after the back cast is finished does not improve the anchor enough to justify the possibility to TL! The termonology in FF is not yet standardized but Drift and Creep are defined very well.

Bright red Ballistic Spey Comp lines are the best I have bought because I have not yet afford to buy Gaelforce. They have good tapers and are strong and have not break when I Creep, blow anchors and cast TLs

Met Lee here in Scotland about three years ago. Very capable guy and his wife, Nancy, is charming. He gave a demonstration of his Ballistic lines on the lowest bit of the River Teviot where it forms the famous Junction pool on the Tweed and his casting demo was very top quality. He also took my broken 16'1" Solstice and replaced it with the later version - a much better rod than the original. I like his Ballistics lines a lot and have several of them plus a full set of heads!

I wouldn't claim to know him, but I was fortunate to sign up for my first casting lesson with Lee years ago at SpeyNation, and then for a refresher in Albany, OR in the spring of last year. In both instances, Lee was very good at breaking down his explanation of the complex movements and timing required, as well as diagnosing people's problems with execution. Through it all, light hearted and good natured.

I'm working on my speaking skills and videoing etc, so I thought it would be good to post this about Lee's Scissor video and the Ian Gordon video in response to Bender.
