Jamey...Thank You!!! I have been completely OCD checking this for pictures and videos of the event and casting competition!

Most folks out here in N.W. would probably not have the marbles to put their talent on display at a large gathering like that. Kudos to all who got to it.

My favorite quote of the weekend, "If I wanted to cast upstream, and I don't, this is how I'd do it". -Dec Hogan

Pete H. Thanks for the hospitality, profane book readings, Scotch and Aids from your cabin. That was a kick ass evening and you are a phenominal with the two hand stick.

Looking forward to next year already!!!

Bruce Berry~

I remember thinking that Bruce Berry's analogy of the martini glass was really helpful while he was presenting, but somewhere between here and there I think I lost some of what he was saying. Can anybody give me a refresher on how Bruce was explaining that whole rim of the martini glass movement?

I believe Bruce was stressing the smooth straight movement of the rod tip while the line is moving into the D- loop. Ed Ward does the same thing in his new video "Skagit Master". Ed used a pizza tray to make the same point. If you get the video, you can watch the Jedi master over and over again.

So he's talking about the movement of the rod TIP as you are forming the d-loop (as Terry said). And that motion, after setting the anchor, starts with the tip low to generate line speed. So at some point does the tip have to "climb the wall" of the martini glass so to speak? Or was Bruce talking about the final movement of accelerating for the fore-cast? Is that what you mean by saying it is the movement "while the line is moving into the D- loop" Terry?

He seemed to use a high rod tip throughout the cast, since the head of the compact type Skagit was so short the anchor would be in the right spot and there was not any slack in the line as he made the D loop. that is just my recollection. Send Bruce a PM and that will straighten us both out.
