Default Re: Too much attention to distance?

Well said Jackster.

Now, I am not preaching accuracy over distance to hide my casting shortcomings. (I can probably go 80' on a good day and wind at my back) I would rather show a newcomer proper casting techniques and accuracy and let him/her develop from there.

I learned fly casting from books and magazines back in the late 70's with no instruction whatsoever (Boy I must have looked stupid!) I surely developped bad habits that have hindered my casting. But I am satisfied with the skills I have acquired.
