Default Re: Fly casting lessons scheduled:)

Do a little reading to understand the physics behind casting before your lessons. The basics are the basics for nearly everyone, so the info you
read in an Orvis book won't conflict with what your instructor shows you.
Look at the following topics:
*Loading the rod, and how the line and you acheive this
*Stopping the rod on the back and forward casts
*Allowing the line to unfurl on the forward and back casts
*Controlling the motion of your arm, and the movement of your wrist (or lack
of wrist movement)

Becoming familiar with this now will greatly reduce the amount of time your
instructor need to spend explaining this, and the faster you can move into
casting.
