    Pure awesomeness!

    Last year I went 6 months not bringing my camera because the first day I forgot it I caught a fish.

    Dude... you didn't see the other 996 casts that I edited out to preserve what was left of my shattered ego.

    Your editing skills are supreme. Your casting skill on those you left us to watch are very impressive. You were smiling. Your commentary was right on time and I'm waiting for the sequel.

    agreed...what were the first few casts; they almost looked like a modified circle spey w/ a downstream anchor

    I think you're referring to the snake-roll. I can't double-spey to save my life but the snake-roll comes pretty easy for some reason.
