    Just got home after spending half a day with Craig at Reds trying to improve my switch casting. I still need to practice more but I reached my goal ---my previous best cast in now an average cast and I am now able to cast the Scandi line better than I previously cast a Skagit---despite spending a lot of time practicing and watching video, I am much better than before taking the class. I didn't know that my 5wt switch could throw so much line with so little effort. My 7 wt. may go on the auction block---

    Craig also let us cast his Sage one in a 5 wt and his Redington prospector in a 4 wt. both were a dream to cast.

    Thanks again Craig I appreciate the lessons and the visiting. I tried the slot that you recommended on my way home but it had been hammered so much during the day that I only got one hit that I missed, but was able to fish water I could never reach before.
