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.
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.
