Re: Newb

Summit County, Ski Country USA, 1/2 mile from Dillon Reservoir, 3 miles from Keystone Resort, 15 miles from Breckenridge as the truck drives (5 miles as the crow flies). The Blue River is 5 miles away, but the best fishing on it is is more like 25 miles away and much is private. It's where FIPS Mouc...

Thank you, everyone. My brain now hurts. I'll need some time to process it all. :D

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

I'd not heard Gammel's advice before. That's great! Thank you, thank you. The discussion my mentor and I had was very Socratic in nature and quite long, but to sum it up far too briefly (like FFI does), Creep is unintentional; bad timing is intentional. Creep is unintentional. It can result in a tai...

Re: Newb

Thanks, all, for the welcome. I'll try to adhere to "a light bulb moment," especially when I forever overcome casting bulbous loops. :0 My mentor is an MCI on the casting board of governors who doesn't always agree with FFI (but then, who does??). We had a long email discussion about the difference ...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

I'm replying to my own post as I think about it more. With bad timing, you could have an otherwise perfectly good stroke length and arc size; it's just that the timing is off. With creep, you are rotating the rod too early; with drag you are not. Still I don't know all the nuances of loop shape.

Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

So, my mentor posed a question to me that I've been pondering: What is the difference between creep and bad timing? But it also brings up for me the question of drag. Creep, according to the FFI's CCI study guide, is rotation in the direction of the next cast during the pause. (Kreiger said it is th...

Newb

Greetings board members! Carol here from the Colorado high country where fishing is pressured and the season too brief. Like others have admitted, I've been a lurker to the website for awhile, occasionally doing a sneak-and-peak when I need a better understanding of some aspect of casting that no on...
