I must have been in a relaxed mood as I generally had a nice easy tempo and was comfortable casting 10’ into the backing.... on a 90’ line I hasten to add... not far I realise, but something I need to get stick in my dopey head :whistle:
Apart from the usual suspect of tracking my usual biggest issue is rushing and over-powering the stroke, however much I realise a smooth steady stroke is the answer I still too often find myself rushing it... perhaps I should go back to my youth and take up the herb again... chilled out casting definitely is a big step forward for me :D
This is the reason why I see many casters (myself included at times) casting further with their warm up casts in competition than when they're told the clock has started.

I think casting is a bit like playing pool - there's an optimum level of inebriation required for best performance.

That’s interesting. So long as I can still see the other end of the table my pool playing seems to improve the.more lubricated I am. I haven’t experimented to this high degree with casting sport, but you might be onto something. :cool:
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.
