Joan, again and again and again !

what a treat for the fly casting world ! Joan Wolff’s at it again, this time with new and up to date casting techniques.
the first edition ‘Fly Casting Techniques’ was and still is a great inspiration of mine and was part of my study materials for my instructor exams. sure, there’s a few quirky things like ‘power-snap’, ‘constant pressure’ and other terms or explanations  i don’t really agree with but there’s no problem there because it’s just not possible for me to completely agree with anyone…
there’s so much more to gain through her words and descriptions that it would be a shame to get too picky.
i’ll be getting one soon and will follow up with a review.

” In its first edition, Joan Wulff’s Fly-Casting Techniques became an instant classic, revolutionizing the art form of fly casting and changing how an entire generation approached the sport. Now, with Joan Wulff’s New Fly Casting Techniques, Joan brings her pioneering set of casting “mechanics” to a new audience, offering precise descriptive terms for every part of the cast. Sections are included on improving accuracy and distance, loop control, shooting lines, aerial mending, the double haul, correcting common mistakes, and more. With improvements and refinements on her original techniques, and with a set of extraordinary drawings by David Shepherd.”

sound good ? get it here.

    alas, it didn’t work very well.

    at first i was thinking you meant you wanted to look like her but that sounds silly.
    anyhow, did you fall over ? i recommend casting with either wider shoes or snow rackets. i’m sure you could find them on sale at this time of the year at your nearest Decathlon.
