The Double Haul by Eric Sherar
first shared and analyzed on Gordy Hill’s MCCI discussion group about a year ago, this absolutely fantastic casting instruction video series shows us an experiment on teaching the double haul with a complete novice to fly casting. we basically see the complete lesson in real time and there’s a lot to learn here whether you’re an instructor or someone wanting to improve your double haul technique.
divided in twenty videos, it’ll take you about two hour’s time to view the whole series and it’s well worth taking the time to stop and watch certain sequences again.
this is a real treat, i hope you’ll not only benefit but enjoy.
