Excellent point, Frank! That's something I realized not too long ago, and
it works very well.

Zen casting: I've taught my wife how to make basic casts, but the tricky
stuff is more tricky to teach. I often simply don't think about what I
do when going beyond a basic cast, and have to cogitate for a while
before giving any kind of advice or direction. After I videotaped my wife
casting a couple weeks ago, I thought it would be nice to see myself casting.
