Some bloke hereabouts recently put out an email inviting folks along to have a lesson as he had a bit of spare time up his sleeve. Cost an arm and a leg mind you

Shortly after sending an affirmative email to his website address, I had to leave the house and wouldn't have a clue if he's been trying to contact me or not as mobile phones and myself do not get along very well. As he's aware of some inherrent issues in my casting, he's probably gone interstate again

If he's still around I can fit in most days next week although Monday arvo has now been booked with my lovely young physiotherapist




Cheers,

George

Thanks Justin - a very pleasant morning session in the sun down at the local park ... coffee was more than passable too!

Learnt a few things to take away with me, and sorted a few issues out .... all to practise on leading up to bonefish time




Cheers,

George

Some awesome loops there mate, it ain't rocket science as you know but those tweaks make a huge difference. No Christmas island bonefish is safe now, in any wind!!!

Very nice of you to say that, but as you were well aware within a minute of starting there were a few inherent bugs to sort out - I put a bit more time in late this afternoon and the tail has definitely gone.

Even after a series of lessons over the past few years with some of the great Australian casters, it just wasn't sinking in exactly how little effort you need to put into a cast to make it a great cast.

Having the opportunity to go one on one ... and your reinforcement of a "less is more" mentality, has finally wormed its way into my mindspace and what I got out of the session has made an unbelievable difference to my casting in such a short space of time.

That Belgium cast is also the duck's nuts to avoid any hook adornments




Cheers,

George

Belgian, Belgian! Carl McNeill would kill me if we didn't call it the oval or constant tension cast.
