Fly Cast Glossary Project

The Flyfishing Forum is currently building a Fly Cast Glossary for 2005. You may either start a new thread to begin describing a cast, or reply to someone else's thread on the cast. Please lets do our best to keep them sorted out for future reference.

There will be an 'official' glossary made on the main pages with room for videos, images, and of course the best descriptions from members with credits and additions from interviewed pros and instructors from around the world.

For now feel free to begin discussions on casting to get things rolling; in fact we already have some good content to capture in the glossary started.

Rather than using complicated databases, let's try a new approach here. I have created "sub forums" under art of casting.

These will not be open forums, in other words we won't be able to post into them directly. Instead it will serve as a reference library, read-only except for Editors and librarians to manage.

It will be searchable, and be kept updated.
