By the way, do you plan to be in Maine in the near future..............if so, I could use a casting lesson!
I wanted to video tape him right then but he didn't want me to. I'm gonna work on him.
As for the lesson from me, I don't think I was that instumental in his casting abilities. He now casts WAYYYYY farther than I do.

Really... his cast are in a range few humans can do.
I keep telling him that, but because we are the only 2 fly fishermen around here ( I may be the only other one he's ever seen in person ) he thinks, well his exact words; "I think more people can cast that far than you think can." His casting stroke is something to watch, and he sure didn't get it from me. I told him 10 and 2 he's going pretty close to 3 and 9. When he hauls his arms end extended with his hands as far apart as you can get them. The line never gets below about waist level and his loops are seriously tight. I have never set there and watched anyone shoot backing out of a rod before. I would love to see what he can do with a good setup. The thing with the rod tip and a $10 K-Mart 4 wt line going over 100' blows my mind. He did it more than once and in fact did it from his knees and still didn't hit the ground with the line. I hit the ground standing up using the whole rod all the time.
I should add, he has been watching videos of guys casting. He likes the sexy loops website and says there are guys throwing way farther than what wins contests here. I may have to ake a look around there.
