Is it just me, or does everyone else seem to have good and bad casting days aswell?
Last weekend I felt like having a flick, so I got out on the lawn and to my surprise I was nailing everthing. I had never felt the rod load like that before, my tracking was sweet and I my distance was crazy.
2day was a different story though! Had the arvo of work, so I decided to head down to the park for a cast. I had no feeling through the rod, consistantly had tailing loops, and my long casts kept hitting the ground. Frustrating to say the least, so I gave up with the rite hand and started from skratch with the left.
Funny how it goes, but I supose thats what keeps it interesting.

Its days... when you loose your MOJO. Gav I get those days as well.

I had one session on CI where... every cast hooked up to the bottom and had tangles and I cast at a cracker bone and the fly snagged on the first strip.....I hooked into my hat on one cast...a shocker, Im glad it was just that one day.

Just like golf, go out and nail everything one day and can't hit it the next

Happens to me too; but lately I've been using a bit of pychology - give myself some exercises I can nail - on myself to try to salvage the session with relaxed control. I've been visualising the earlier success and checking through the preliminary steps, grip, shorten the line out, start with tight loops, try to relax my hand and reduce the effort used in the stroke. etc etc, you know all the stuff. Then lengthen bit by bit. It worked for the last couple of times I felt stumped at my inability.

I also find that if I regularly change my casting exercises, for example lately I've been trying to extend the amount of line I can hold in the air with controled loops, however, after a several minutes I change to something completely different like short curve casts then go back to the line carry. It helps to end on a high note by nailing something I can do well even if it's old hat for me.

There are times I realise I should do something completely different ........ like have a beer!
