I need to practice!
I realized I've fallen into a lot of bad habits--I'm not casting so much as I'm flailing. It's so easy to start making the flycast a power move rather than a thing of finesse and timing. Couple that with fighting the wind, and things get ragged in a hurry.

It's time to get in the yard and drill the fundamentals.

Re: I need to practice!
It seems that we talk about this frequently. Best advise I can offer is when the cast starts to deteriorate, shorten things up and regain control. It is better to cast a good short line than a terrible long one.

Re: I need to practice!
Ditto what Ard posted. I sometimes find myself getting tired and sloppy, and
shorten things up until the brain kicks back in.
