Well I went to the casting instruction today presented by Ray Bianco and hosted by Joseph Narkovitz.  There were 15 or 20 of us in attendance and it was certainly time well spent.  Instruction was given on regular and two-handed casting with a great deal of attention to the details of constructing a good cast. I think anyone willing to listen got some very good one-on-one instruction on theory and rods and lines. Thanks to Ray for giving generously of his time and expertise. Nice guy!
