Casting lessons?

T
Tribal16
I have been trying to hit up some lakes recently and have realized that i am not very good at casting.. Was wondering if anyone would be interested in giving me some pointers while we fish? I can go sat or sunday would pick you up from where ever and provide lunch. It can be a lake, stream, river.

Let me know!

If not can anyone recommend a good instructor?

Take bigsteel up on his OFFer! You will not regret it one bit. Not only will you learn something about casting but will get taken to some great fishing locations. Hey Dave does that OFFer stand for me too?

Ya bigsteel we still need to go fishing together. Have you ever fished where Pringle Creek runs into the Willamette by the park? I saw some guy fishing there today.

Berg, I fish down there somewhat often, was at the dock today for a moment, I am also willing to teach fly casting around Salem.

Halibuthitman, I could teach you how to double-haul..... But you will have to wait until you're my age.

Drew, just smear carp slime on yourself, the fish will take you as one of their own and show you their secrets.

Full blown river/stream fly fishing gathering maybe? I need to work on my casting as well. All I know I learned from this. I cast and think WHUMP WHUMP.

Ya, and I have no problem picking up Brandon and heading out anywhere near the Salem area.

Any good fly fishing down there? The guy i saw fishing was using some sort of plastic jig/worm. Didn't see him catch anything though.

Try Minto Brown Park. There's some ponds, and it accesses the Willamette. It's not trouting - but there's lots of bluegill and bass to be had, and if you're super lucky, carp :)

That is usually one of the best methods for the Smallies and Largemouth down there. I'd imagine with the right fly and retrieve, one could get a 1-2lb Smallmouth, I'm thinkin heavyish Crawfish patterns along with a Redside Shiner pattern, they (the Smallies) chase baitfish up to your feet sometimes. If you want to hit it up sometime (on a clear day lol), let me know, I'm only about 5 miles away, not a long haul on the longboard, only thing I've managed on a fly has been a bunch of Pikeminnow and a fat Bluegill, but if one drifted a dark 'buggy' pattern, I'd imagine one could pick up a 6-16lb Carp with some effort.
