"As it is with almost any physical/mental skill, itâ€™s hard to detect faults in your technique whereas other can see them easily"

" I started spey fishing about five seasons ago and since Great Lakes spey fishers were hardly as numerous as fleas on a dog back then"
>Can you get to one of Rob Estlund's "Speydays" in Milwaukee this spring? I'd swear there are more speycasters in Wisconsin than the rest of the great lakes put together!
"Rushing things: I donâ€™t know why, but I always felt I had to keep everything moving quickly else it would all fall apart. "
>Like no one else has that problem:^)) Just remember that it's a WALTZ, NOT a breakdance! Try counting the timing as you cast: sweep-2-3; back-2-3; cast.
"Placing the anchor: The word â€œplacingâ€? says it all. I was flinging it all over the place. "
>The Perry Poke/triple spey/Armenian Spey are all good timing corrections for when the anchor lands too far away. Since I've been converted to Head type lines from my DT's, I'm usually overpowering the set-up,(dropping the anchor waaay upstream), so an Armenian is an automatic part of my cast.
"All top hand: Because of the time spent with single-handers, I still apply too much top hand, stop too late, and produce big, sloppy loops. Iâ€™m still working on this one."
>Same problem here, it just takes concentration & practice.
