Some folks don't agree with his method, but that's how I've learned & can't agree more! He's the man!
I've also had the pleasure of meeting him several times & watching some of his casting demonstrations, which are always a learning experience & a joy to watch! He's quite a joke teller too!
If you ever get the opportunity to see him casting in person, don't pass it up! Coolest thing I've seen was when he casts the entire line with just the tip of a rod!
