15 Minutes Closer to Yellostone

Fifteen more minutes on the lawn working on the power stop and timing. As Lefty Kreh promises, 15 minutes of practice a day will make you a better caster. I'm slowly improving my ability to shift my body weight to cast rather than relying on my shoulder and elbow.

I'm now able to unroll a 35 to 40 cast fairly consistently. I still get too many tailing loops, but I can at least now figure out what is causing the problem and fix it.

The wind was picking up today and I was able to practice casting into and under the wind. I'm expecting to face much tougher wind conditions in Yellowstone National Park than I've experienced in central Pennsylvania.
