I decided to try fly casting today. First thing I noticed right away was stringing the line through the eyes of the rod. It took me several tries to get the line through they eyes because I wasn't used to the slick weighted line falling back down the eyes. I only had to restring the line 3 times before I caught on to what was going on.
I watched my loops and only cracked the whip a couple times. Practice went really well and I learned a lot about how fly line works and how to control it. I don't think I ever hit the target I was aiming for, but I got pretty close.
I can't wait to go to the pond soon to see how well I do on the water. First, I have to tie a few flies so watch for that post coming soon.
