Re: Yard Practice
I took a casting lesson earlier this season, and found that part of my problems came from practicing my casts in the yard, and not on the water. Wasn't "loading the rod correctly, as I didn't have that frictionfrom the line coming off the water for the backcast. Also, my roll casts were ghastly, until I tried them on water, and took advantage of the water friction.
