I was really excited to have a chance to go to the big outdoor show in Los Angeles. If you read my previous column this was back in 1952. I had been asked to demonstrate the new Ambassadeur 5000 casting reels that were just being brought into the country.
Now I thought I was pretty good with a bait casting outfit when I headed for Los Angeles. I found out in a hurry I wasn’t nearly as good as I thought.
My current columns on casting are designed with one purpose – to help you become a better caster.
You know, it’s a funny thing. In this country we accept practice as a part of almost every kind of participant recreation. If you’ll ponder that statement for a moment you’ll realize it’s true. We practice so hard for football, baseball or basketball. We practice bowling before league play starts.
