Default Re: Casting mechanics standing vs. seated?

I haven't fished from a tube, but have from a canoe. When sitting in a canoe I find my accuracy is actually better, but if I miss it is usually off to the right. When standing my misses are unpredictable and follow no pattern at all.

Just from the feel of it, I would say I use more body standing up. My arm gets tired faster while sitting.
"To go fishing is the chance to wash one's soul with pure air, with the rush of the brook, or with the shimmer of sun on blue water. It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature, charity toward tackle-makers, patience toward fish, a mockery of profits and egos, a quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have to decide a darned thing until next week. And it is discipline in the equality of men - for all men are equal before fish."
