There is nothing that gets to me more than watching someone Thrashing the water to death with a fly rod.

I simply can't walk past without asking if I could offer a tip or two to making things a bit easier.

Most times my offer is accepted and I am then ready to spend an hour or more showing the tyro how easy it is to cast a fly line when you are shown the Basics and how to apply them.

My Reward is that look of absolute astonishment accompanied by a wide grin as that first GOOD cast sails out there and the line slaps against the rod.

I have taught many to cast a fly line in my time and helped a lot more. Just my way of paying it forward. I love Fly Fishing.
