Posted 06-30-2011 at 08:14 PM by mbphotos54

well, I had a good session in the yard tonight, trying to use the tips from here. I was able to haul and shoot out all but 6 or 7 wraps of flyline on the reel, and was able to repeat the cast several times, my overhead casting isnt hitting the ground or knoting , atleast tonight. Ill get the video cam again next week to post again on my progress. I hope to get back on the creek next week. or pond.

day on the creek

Posted 06-29-2011 at 10:04 PM by mbphotos54

Well I had the idea of getting up early and being the first one at the local creek, so i was! I was glad to atleast be the first on the water today.

I tried several flys to no end result.. I later talked to a guy on the creek about flys and found out what has been doing well here, so I will track a few down and...

casting

Posted 06-27-2011 at 10:26 PM by mbphotos54

more casting in the yard tonight, I think I am getting better. I cleaned the line and rod and the casting was nicer, I also tried a stiffer shorter rod and kinda like the way it casts, It seems my loops are more open and the tip doesnt bounch around when I stop the rod, how to get back out on the water this week. if these storms would stop flooding the creek..
