Imagine Old Johnny with a modern 9' 6 weight fast action graphite, I think he would get the backing with it.

That was neat. So the "double haul" has been around awhile.

Great stuff, He looks like a young Ronald Reagan. Believe it or not, I still use that old 1 to 2 technique in my casting classes. I also incorporate my V method. Great stuff! Thanks for sharing.

Another oldie but goodie series of videos is the Gary Borger fly fishing for trout series on Youtube. Good stuff in my opinion, and still valid today. here is a link to

Re: Old School
Very cool post on "Johnny".

The action on that rod that he's using reminds me a lot of some of the vintage glass rods that I fish during the year; very slow action, a lot of flex and the need for a big casting stroke; particularly on the forward cast.

Thanks for that!
