No problem.

Probably be looking for fishing buddies out there- I don't think they will be hard to find in Melrose,Dillon and Ennis.

If I get some paperwork in the mail soon. I will be there next week.

This is definitely one I would have loved to attend. Just as much as tying and actual fishing, I really enjoy taking the rods out just to throw a bunch of line. I must admit it would have been awesome to see Dave throw a cast 120'. 90' I can achieve but 120' would be something to watch.

One question about that though. Most of my fly lines aren't nearly that long. Was Dave using a special line for that or just shooting into his backing? I believe most of my lines (except for the 10 wt) are between 80' and 90'

I can't speak for the line on his personal 7wt he brought along, but when he was using my 10wt, the line is 120'.

Well, I can speak for his line, it was also 120', but I'm unsure of what taper or design it was.

gfen was he throwing your 10 in those pics? I can get out to about 100' with my 9 & 10wts but any after that just pretty much falls apart. I'm sure Dave could have helped with some pointers. You lucky dogs on the east side. ;)

Dave easily cast the entire line with ease with my 5wt XP (100' +/-adding the length of the line, leader and rod together).

He analyzed my casting and told me I creep on my back and fore cast robbing me of stroke, and on longer casts I apply power too abruptly and need to smooth out the power stroke. I used his advice and worked on my stroke that afternoon and back at home. Before Dave worked with me I struggled and maxed out at about 80-85' with my 5wt, now I can cast the entire line with a decent loop (100' +/-) with much less effort.

Yeah, I know I seldom if ever will need to cast 100’ fishing around here, but I’ve always believed, and Dave confirmed my belief many times during the session, that flaws in your casting technique are magnified at longer distances. Refining your technique at long distances makes you a better caster at any distance because good technique gives you better line control and thus results in greater accuracy.

Thanks again Dave.

The line I was using is a Scientific Anglers Expert Distance taper and, I believe, is listed as a tournament line. It is fluorescent orange. The standard Expert Distance lines are 105'. The tournament line is 120'.
