I'm now wondering if there is a specific reason that Bassfisher, and Paul32 are posting from the same IP address?

our American friend bassfisher and his Aussie alterego Paul32 have left the building.  I hope his "sponsers" don't get too upset.

Well yes this might improve your casting but only to cast into a coffee but this is unrealastic, I'm not being negative at all I'm just saying to improve your cast you will have to practice casting in the environment that you fish in as there will be obstacles you have to cast over/avoid but I do often throw the od lure into a bucket when I'm not out on the water  :thumbsup

I agree with whole bucket and cup theory.  Wouldn't that throw your aim off  when you actually do go fishing????

I prefer to cast  atleast 5 times at a random object in the backyard.  Mainly trying to land the sp within an inch of the object.

Casting accuracy depends on where you are fishing, and what you are fishing with.  Arafura Barra lures sheer off to the right by about 8", Feral Cats go the opposite way.  Sometimes you want a loopy cast with the lurecoming down softly, other times you want to smack it into the surface.  Fitz is probably the best "on the water" caster I've fished with.  Harro was possibly better when he was younger.  Practice, practice practice it what separates good fishos from the best.  Spend a week fishing rivers in PNG and you'll learn the difference between landing a lure in a bucket and landing it in a coffee cup.

i find that casting in the wild shows how good i am cause nearly every cast i can land the lure on a floating leaf, only prob is that i am not aiming at the friggen leaf and it fouls the lure  :)) :))

This is really good stuff here crew; what with coffee cups and buckets, floating leaves and so forth. You always learn something new... I've substituted trees with branches just out of reach. I can hit plenty of them, no further practice required. Seriously (giggle) on the water time is the best there is.
