    View attachment 37355 View attachment 37356 Really didn't plan on catching a fish more or less just went for some casting. Wife tried to get a few good pics but they are so so. Like the new rod but need to play with it a while with one of my heavier lines.

    I think the best thing I can do is to slow down a little I think. I am always feeling like I need to GO GO GO. When I watch youtube, casting videos it always look so SLOW and easy!!!

    Slowing down the mind and therefore the body will probably help a lot. And one of the best things you can do is go out with someone who is a good casting instructor who can stand safely to the side and offer instruction such as:

    "Slow down."

    "That was a dangerous cast."

    "Slow down."
