MASTER YOUR FLY CASTING! AND HAVE FUN DOING IT
Author: Jim C. Chapralis
Publisher: INDEPENDANT PUBLISHERS GROUP, Apr 2006
How to excel at fly casting & prepare for tournament competition. 49 B&W illus, 15 line drawings; 5.5x8.5 inches, 216 pgs.
Fly casters will learn the relationship between casting skill and fishing success as they use the exercises presented in this handbook to advance to the next skill level. Designed to make fly-casting practice more motivating and fun, these exercises employ a series of targets and challenges to encourage fly casters to hone their skills and develop from merit-class into master-class anglers, a position that only the top 10% of casters achieve. An introduction to the American Casting Association's (ACA) official fly events and regulations is an integral part of the program, and casters are encouraged to incorporate the challenges associated with these events into their practice rounds and to score their results as if participating in tournament play in order to fine tune their techniques and prepare for actual competitions. A section that includes interviews with accomplished casters, information on casting clubs, and instructions for using a video camera to improve casting techniques rounds out this informative work.
