    As Dan said, welcome to the forum! Here is the link to the exhibit: Fly Fishing Museum: History, Legends, Rods, Reels, Flies - AMFF

    I see that they honored Casting for Recorery, that was great! I swear that photo titled "Montana Fly Shop" looks like a photo I have seen in the past of Dan Baileys shop back in the day when they turned out thousands of custom flies.

    Thanks for the link. I would have added a couple more at least though. April Vokey;

    The Eastern Phenom, Reverend Paige Rodgers is sadly missing from the lineup.
    She has been locally revered for many years in the NE. Excellent fisher-person and fly creator.

    Hey Dan,

    The first cast of the first vid, that's what I have been trying to describe to you when we've talked. That was the first cast I figured out when fishing 'river left'. I don't know what it's called but that is how I cast about 70% of my fishing. I got so good with that one that I try to keep river left as often as I can.

    Nice clips,

    Ard

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Dan: I have to agree, I was thinking the same thing, but couldn't remember April's name. How about our own Joni!

    Yah, April Vokey has become fairly famous. And yes! Why isn't Joni on that list?

    It's a cackhand (Off the wrong shoulder) snap-t. From the other side of the river you can do it off your right shoulder. I like it because it's a sustained anchor cast and I can get a big heavy fly up out of the water with it. I have a video where I toss an 8" Pike fly with that cast. By the way, she puts a pile of line out there doesn't she?
