Road Rhythm

Okay, it is fair to say we probably have at least a few weeks before the fishing really picks back up around the DC area.

For some, pretty severe cabin fever is setting in. It can be hard to get much practice in because of the weather. One of the things I do is practice some of mechanics of my casting to a song on the car radio. If you haven’ tried this, give it a whirl. I try and work on different type of single handed casts, and don’t practice your double haul – unless you’re stopped.

Try a pick up and lay down cast

Then false cast to the rhythm

Think about your hand.

Where is that rod tip tracking?

Feel the stop

What would that loop look like?

And on and on and on…

Road Rhythm, give it whirl and let me know what you listened and how it worked.

Here is a Alan Jackson piece to get started:
