Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

Yeah, Colorado just got a "Stay at Home" order that went into effect at 6 am MDT today. (And to think I just renewed my fishing license yesterday!) So the problem is that you can get somewhere remote to avoid contact with people, but then it's too remote for contact with people? Are there signal boo...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

Hmm. I've printed SL's Flycasting Model an Introduction to the Definitions, and the definitions themselves, and will study them top to bottom using a highlighter and making notes. It will be enlightening.

Re: Newb

You really wouldn't want to fish with me because I suck, but I can introduce you to some guides who absolutely do NOT and who have boats. ;)

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

It is rotation in the direction of the NEXT cast while the loop is unrolling, so you can't really call it drift. The difference is that it is intentional. So it would seem that none of the definitions fit really well. Let's come up with a new one! :sick:

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

The Paul Arden [broken] Etch Sketch Gallery of Fly Casting. In our Zoom meeting last night of CCI candidates, JW went through the Bruce Richards' powerpoint of casting mechanics, with the caveat early on that the FFI definitions were labored over for years. Finally, the leader said, essentially, "Th...

Re: basic question regarding tracking

This is something to try indoors with the lights off, seriously. Holding a laser pointer instead of a rod, go through your off-vertical casting stroke. Watch the light on the ceiling and see if it follows a straight line. If not, see where it deviates from a straight line and work on that without a ...

Re: Newb

That's pretty much true, and some rivers and places on them are worse than others. Because of that, more anglers are hitting the lakes. PLUS there are pike in a few of the reservoirs around here. Although one of the guides at Cutthroat Anglers (my home shop) caught a 42" pike in the lakey water arou...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

OK. I"ve re-read the responses twice and my brain doesn't hurt as much. Until I am able to actually implement these different things intentionally and with skill, there won't be any light bulbs flashing. More things to practice. At least with my hours at work cut in half (pay too :( ), I have a bit ...
