Forum casting tuition

Post by Weaver on Tue Sep 29, 2009 12:52 pm

So with the cod season upon us I gues thoughts move to getting some distance. Well the cod aren't always at 200yds, but a smooth efficient casting style will certainly be a good start.

So Colin has generously offered his time to our members again. He will be in the cogden area for a week from the 10th to the 17 October. He has suggested a good date for a group session would be Friday 16th. I guess we will be looking at an early evening session. I personally can't make this date as its my sons birthday but may try and meet up with colin during the week.

So if anyone wants some help with casting register your interest here. If Colin could confirm the date and times that would be great.

Sounds like a cracking idea, think I need more technique rather than brute force. Very Happy

Okay guys Friday the 16th is fine I will liase with richard about time and plaice!! and weather.

As you know I dont charge for my tution however the England Junior fishing squad is in need of funds, there has already been a match fished in the bournemouth area to raise funds for our junior anglers.

Can I suggest that a small donation into their funds would help them. This can be collected by sally on the day(and god forbid anybody who refuses!!!!) and i will make sure DBY gets it.

Rather than put my mobile number on line anybody fishing chesil the week
of the 10th and wants to make contact then richard has my number.

Thanks Colin, sounds like a plan. Again, I'd strongly recommend anyone who can make it taking colin up on this offer. The improvement you get for a few minutes help is amazing.

That sounds very enticing just to see how far I really can cast. Also someone might be able to persuade me to have a go with the reel down the butt. A stupid question but do we have to supply our own leads?

Hi Kep

Have a go and see what you can do, however if you have a go down the butt(and it would help you gain a few more yards) make sure that you use a rod shorter than 14ft if you are going to pendulum, otg is better with a longer rod but most casters would struggle to pendulum with any rod longer than 14ft.

I will try with the reel down on my current 16' rods as I am use to pedulum casting with them but will also try with my 13' rods to see if there is a difference in distance.

Might give it a go at Weymouth. What time?

Just a quick update on Fridays plans for everyone going.

Colin will be at Hive beach from about 3pm. Head to the left a hundred yards or so and you will find Colin. You can have some casting tuition with Colin and then continue fishing. He usually keeps an eye on you as you fish, then has a quick review of how your casting is going.

The weather is looking very good for Friday to have a go at rays and sole so there should be a few fish as well! So could everyone intending to go please let me know so I can give Colin the numbers expected. If you need to contact Colin directly then I have his number.

I'm really gonna try and get down there, but I just don't know what time I will get out of work. I fear it will be late at the moment unfortunately.
