practise with or without a teacher having set up a plan for practising?
that is exactly the point am after. Thanks.
I think in a lot of sports (Baseball, football, handball, soccer, rugby, tennis etc.) we will never see those guys at the top level, who did not have the best notes in school sport either. Those who did, usually have high level physical and sensomotoric abilties.
In fly casting I have seen quite some very good casters, which I think would never make it to a top level in those other sports. So my question is how much of those physical and sensomotoric abilities do we really need to become a top fly caster?
Personally I think not as much as one might think.
With a good plan for practising I think a lot of us can become a top level fly caster.
Am talking about smoothness, controlling loop shape and line speed. As well as having a serious repertoire of casts, all being on a high level.
