Fantastic Lesson Today
I had an absolutely fantastic spey lesson today with Steve Buckner in Toledo, WA. It was over 4 hours, all on the water breaking the cast down into component pieces and putting them back together. He was an incredibly thoughtful, detailed and patient instructor. I'd highly recommend him to anyone in Portland or Seattle that is struggling with any part of their casting.
While I generally try to pick up some coaching by taking a couple of guided trips a year with people I know to be good teachers, there is an enormous difference between what is possible when you are trying to fish and when you are 100% focused on specifically getting particular elements of the cast straightened out.
