Sounds like someone got thier pride hurt also .
I think the words I picked are just fine IMHO

I had my cast picked apart many times in one weekend but I swallowed my pride and started to pick my own cast apart and work on my faults and it has help make me a better caster.
My biggest fault is my back cast I don't make enough of abrupt stop before my drift .

What is yours

Na. Didn't get my pride hurt because of two things. First, I can lay out a nice long accurate cast, obtain a good drift and catch the trouts regularly. Second, I know that while doing that my casting stroke is very labored. I was a lot happier working one on one with Dave instead of having 20 of my peers watching the nightmare, however I am also aware that I wasn't paying for instruction and we were all there to learn.

I have no pride, I'm humble as they come.

Being awesome, is that a fault?

No, watching him go through and explain the motions helped clarify some things I'd been letting go wrong, I didn't want to be pushy and take up more of his time as there were alot of people who hadn't gotten the benefit of his knowledge before.

I've gotten lazy, recently, and have let bad habits form and learned to cover them up. I've been reminded of that fact, and a desire to learn some of the more advanced casts beyond the simplest four parter.

I would've really liked to get a moment to have him one-on-one the switch cast, though, but just seeing someone go through the motions beats and video or picture sequence.

Big thanks to Ed and all the instructors. Lots of good information to digest. My only reccommendation would be to have this in the fall say September or October as February is generally pretty cold.
