Scratch that -- I will continue doing it. Everyone needs to work on their cast to keep it going smoothly. I believe I'll go out tonight and do the 1/2 rod thing for about 10 minutes -- remind me of my timing.

Just keep at it -- casting gets easier the more you do it, and once you have it boy is fly fishing a joy .
Thanks for the tip! I'll give that a try.
