Default Fear of Fly Casting

I was reminded of this Dave Berry column recently. It's from 9 years ago but still funny

Fear of fly-casting - Dave Barry - MiamiHerald.com

Rip,
Thanks for posting the article. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Funny as it sounded, I have been there and have the"T" shirt to prove it...casting practice was all it was, but I enjoyed it at the time.
