So was I until I tried to cast and couldn’t get the timing right. I was still trying to cast with one swing. The fly was going no were and I was starting to feel silly. As time went by I watched the other fishermen and learned were I was going wrong. I could have got a book on the topic but at 12 i wasn’t into books.
