Great report Pjcalla and glad to see your success and enjoyment was not dependent upon actual fish caught.

Great read...

I'll be heading back to the keys this June. Full of anticipation, excitement, and fear of blowing a good shot. My palms are sweating just thinking about it!

Around here I practice with the carp. Very spooky, and the casting must be pretty spot on in terms of hitting the dinner plate.

I've got my own skiff and after I started fly fishing a few years ago I quickly realized that the 30' IMMEDIATE & accurate cast in any direction off the bow was the hardest thing to learn.

I try to spend sometime casting from the bow everytime I'm out on the boat, but I've still got a long way to g.

My backcast is weak and inaccurate, so I've started to try to learn to switch hit - cast with my left to the right. We'll see . . .
