What to except from Practice
Great advice from everyone on what to practice. A small thought on what to except from practice sessions. Remember that you WILL have peaks, plateaus and valleys. It is very import to walk away from the task at hand and let the mind and body do a little "reminiscing". Practice at varing tempos(sp?) remembering that a s-l-o-o-w-e-r tempo is usually better. We all tend to rush throught the casting cycle so we can get the next cast right away! A side note is to cast with a friend, it makes casting an event. Guard against becoming addicted to practice, it casue things like: "Let's go casting" instead of "Let's go fishing"; When fishing you want to cast again instead of fishing the swing out; and, "There's no fish here today so let JUST practice".
