Re: Foot position?
Tracker, I've mentioned this before, but if someone is a recovering spinner fisherman, a right foot forward can defuse the wind up and throw habit.
When you use the power of the rod, instead of the power of the arm, you can cast anyway it pleases you. Good distance is the evidence that you are getting the cast right.
The hazard is that you will fish "overthere" instead of nearby. I catch many fish within a few feet of my feet.
I have a hula hoop for a big target on my lawn (you can hang it too). I like to do BB in the bucket as well. SS mixing bowl, nine ft leader, and one BB on it.
Layout nine ft of line, with the shot already in the bowl. Now, pick it up, and put it back. Repeat until you can't miss. Now go fish!!!
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
