Yeah it was absolutly awesome!!! He really opened my eyes..and it just makes so much more LOGICAL sense. Even before we went outside to cast I felt extremely more confident, thats exactly what I was looking for. You can really tell that Ed loves doing that sorta thing, Defiantly worth the $$$$!!!
"That's one thing Ed likes to teach, that fly casting is nothing more than simple physics."
While Ed does explain the physics very thoroughly, I would have to say he is really stressing the basics. Things like practice and watching your backcast. Many of the guys are tensing up and trying to "heave" the line using power and force. Some of us are cheating using the double haul to achieve line speed. For most of us it was break the cast down and try to see, understand and correct what we are doing.
In my case I start the acceleration for the cast too far back. No matter how many books I read or how many videos I watch, I would never have picked it up on my own. Ed showed me what I could achieve if I just start the cast a little sooner! And practice without the double haul
A great time in spite of the weather. Ed was an excellent teacher, stressing the basics. I learned a lot from him. He took the time to show each of us what we were doing wrong and how to correct it. All of this in chilly, wet weather! I would also like to thnk Jay Caville for putting this all together for the club. Have to go practice what I learned now.
