Damn Left Hand

I have designated the 8126 as my indicator rod!! And George told me the Perry Poke is an excellent lead eyed fly cast so with the 8126 and the Perry Poke I am all set for a summer on the Stilly.

I think once I get it through my head to not push with my left hand but pull with my right (80%-20%)...George told me I had an excellent stroke and pivot but I was pushing way too much. He said to do what you can to tough just touch my fingers on left hand instead of actually gripping the rod.

Can not wait to give it anothe go though...Wensday is just a couple days away.
