Hello all,

Just joined Sexyloops, after watching some of the videos, and reading a lot of the content on the website.

-Started fly fishing in September 2017
-Less interested in actual fish, and more interested in getting a consistent casting style established
-Fish on large still waters, and looking to progress to Sea fly fishing during the summer months. Wrasse, Pollock and Bass being the target :yeahhh:

-Still working on the double haul - Need the distance to get to the fish sometimes on my local stillwater
-Reading about the minimum power during the cast was a revaluation - Thanks Paul
-Short hauls on the rotation of the rod butt has really started helping with the casts as well

Look forward to meeting to you all, and continuing to learn and hopefully improve my casting!

Regards,

Andy

Hi Andy,

There's lots of great casters in the North West, mostly they are very ugly though but don't hold that against them :D
Have you had a casting lesson? Being as you're just starting off getting a couple of lessons in straight away will benefit hugely in getting some great fundamentals established.
Beyond that, try and hang out with some good casters and you'll soon be up there with them.
And above anything else, have fun.

James

Richard Gere who posted above is correct, there is lots of good casters up here.

We are hosting a Fly Casting World Championships here in Cumbria this year and will be out casting most days, you are welcome to come and meet / have a cast with the team Andy.

Cheers
Lee

Thanks for the reply's guys,

Working offshore as on 5 weeks rotations can make attending some events difficult.

I've got my 3rd lesson booked for I get back ashore.

But I'm going to make the every effort to get to any casting events I can. I just stumbled across "Berlins" theory of fly casting on the board as well which is a a very interesting read.

Do either of you know of any casting clubs near Liverpool / Chester.

Thanks,

Andy H

Hi Andy,

Welcome to the Board!! Not sure of any casting clubs there but James might know. They have BFCC meets around the country.

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.
