Juro,Topher,myself and all the others boys who have passed the test know it was long road to the final day when we were tested.Man was it it ever a long road,2 years in my case.
A ton of hours practicing on the water,talking to guys like Juro,Simon,Andy and many others certainly helped me in my preparations.
I am sure I speak for us all when I say, if you have any questions,trivial as they may sound to you dont be afraid to ask.
Myself and the other guys will be more than happy to help you out,I'm sure.
Another thing to consider if you are fortunate to have any air miles saved you may want to think about taking a trip to spend some time with one of the guys who have passed the test.Assuming you get an offer.
I for one would be more than happy to offer a room at my house and a few days on the river going through the test with you.
One bit of advice I can offer is to practice all the casts the correct way,and also,more important, the incorrect way.
Screw up on purpose.This will help you understand the mechanics a lot better.
As far as the oral part of the test,practice your explanations to be short and as concise as possible.
Watch as many of the video's that are currently available as often as you can and listen to the different analogies different people use,then try and come up with some of your own.
That's my 2 cents worth for now.
Good luck and practice practice practice.
Man,how many times have you heard that one.!!!
