How long have you been casting? I started casting in 1967.
Where do you practice? Most of my practice was done at GGACC growing up, and until 1982 before moving to Washington State. Since then, I've trained either on the field by my house, or at the pond near a friend's house.
Favorite fish to catch: Steelhead for the beautiful places they are found. tarpon for their tremendous fighting abilities. Bonefish for the visual and casting skill needed to present the fly. Also permit, because they are so damned hard to catch.
Favorite rod: G.Loomis
Favorite reel: Langley
Advice for new casters: Attend some casting tournaments. Practice on a regular basis. Locate a casting coach to help get you on the right track.
Philosophy relating to casting: Practice until you can go through the motions without thinking about it.
