since he noticed you have a powerful cast... it is possible to overpower the forward cast and get the hook around instead of laying out straight.I tend to double haul always and sometimes it is not needed. I have been looking at how to do the hook cast "on purpose" and one way is to turn the wrist and make rod tip go in oval near end of forward stroke.

Harry Crofton is I believe certified instructor as is David Lemke. Steve Soule is also a certified instructior.

tight loops,

Temps are not bad but 60% rain is annoying.

Dave,
Did you fish it with fly rod? I fished it in the '70's while in dental school. We could wade in and caught some nice trout on spoons.

I saw a fishing buddy straighten a mono leader by rubbing the line with his fingers vigorously to the point of burning from friction.

A bit ironic about Puck and hair dryer. Maybe should have suggested a scalp dryer ::)

Wondering if putting 2 feet stretched out under tension and hit it with hair dryer.  not sure but worth a try.

Puck do you know the answer? ;D

I was thinking if the Clouser was dredged on the bottom then the leader would be less likely to get nicked up from shell. Ah, just a thought.

My fishing buddy had similar condition. Laminectomy on Oct 7th and could fish just after Thanksgiving. Better to live to fish another day. Cheers.

Well, we will have pretty much same conditions Saturday morning. I am wondering if driving 2 hours one way is worth the effort. Seems like we will have icy conditions and many overpasses to cross. Any thoughts here.
