Aiming is Key to Casting with Accuracy
One of the most important keys to improving your cast is to aim at a target.
When I am sight-fishing, I am trying to place my dry fly precisely in front of the fish in the correct lane. I am aiming for a target. And if I don’t hit my target, I’m probably not going to catch that fish.
Do you think Steph Curry practices his 3-pointers without shooting the basketball at a hoop? Of course not! Imagine Steph throwing balls into the air towards an imaginary hoop during practice, and then hoping that his shots will go in at game time. Doesn’t the idea seem ridiculous? Doesn’t it?
Steph practices with a target and so should you.
Always aim for a target in the casting pools or a point on the grass.
When you practice without a target, you are essentially throwing your balls into the air, hoping that they will go in during the game. Don’t be ridiculous.
