: : Brother, if you can successfully fly fish, it doesn't matter WHAT you use as a whip! You're going to hit what YOU swing at! I tried fly fishing once in my life. I don't think my uncle EVER got all that line out of his apple trees by his pond. I can throw a whip well, but I still won't attempt fly fishing again. I understand rod and reel to well now. Regards.

: Well, it's really not that tough. Especially if you've figured out how to throw a whip since you tried it last. I bet that with a little effort and a big grassy field, we'd have you casting nice, tight loops in one afternoon. You wouldn't be great, mind you. But you could go fishing - which is what it's all about really.
You're absolutely right. It's just like learning not to flinch when the tip of the whip first is coming back at you. I just can't seem to keep the thought of that hook from the back of my head. But you're right, we CAN be taught until we die, right? Thanks. Regards. Michaelson
