Excellent Ryan . . . now you just have to learn to :hehe: DUCK :hehe: when the Indicator comes whizzing by so the little lead-eyed monster doesn't eat your ear!!
Seriously, tho . . congratulations! Nothing more fun that getting your first spey casting lessons. I remember John Farrar teaching us the various casts on the shores of the North Fork Skykomish quite a few years ago. I still remind myself of several points he made when my casting goes South (and it does for everyone occasionally).
