Great report. I'd say that another guide just about went hoarse telling someone typing this message as he had to calmly repeat mend mend mend mend mend mend mend and set it set it set it set it set it. I'm better today because of his patience with me and willingness to keep coaching. Thanks Derek. Great read, thank you for sharing your experience.

When I fished with Brian Paige on a trip my wife won he would put her about 15' from the seam he wanted her to fish. When she took breaks and I was fishing it seemed that he put me 40' or more away from the spot to hit. He worked his ass of rowing us and putting us on fish all day long and made me make casts that were very precise. I'm going to give him full credit for doing this on purpose and in doing so as a method of advancing my casting capabilities. I will forever be thankful for him doing this, it totally altered how I visualize, practice and actually make casts. Very different in that drift boat compared to a beach or on a lake in the float tube. Here is to all the guides that make us better even when we don't know they are doing it. Thanks Brian.
