    Looking at your location you live really close to Bristol Water.Contact Martin Cottis.He is a master caster if ever there was one.Sounds desperate so save yourself a lot of heartache.

    Thank you all for your comments, one thing I should of added was I had lessons 2 twos ago and with my memory I had pretty much forgotten what I was taught. After that particular session I took a step back, read your comments and read a few books which reminded me of what I should of learnt.
    I had purchased another rod, if I have it in my head then Il get it. After a few reviews I decided on a Greys GR50 10ft, it also coincided with a x8 nectar bonus on ebay. I chatted to a friend who fishes Chew lake almost weekly, took his advice, read some books, watched youtube and took my rods to work so I could practice in the car park.
    I went out yesterday and with a few tweaks, my stance, my arm movement, a few memories and a picture of a stick man with a flyline flying over head in an arc, I set to casting short, and it worked, it worked a few more times, slow and concentrate, still not elegant but I was happy. cant get it right-1-1-jpg
    I was using both rods, set up a dry Damsel fly on the Snowbee and a Damsel nymph on the Greys and spent 30 mins on each for a few hours.
    I will get more lessons, but Im very happy with my results and I hadnt caught the grass or rod at all. Back to basics and not get frustrated and I left there very happy indeed.cant get it right-2-1-jpg

    Two fish big enough for a family dinner in the net for a day's outing. No problems catching terra firma, the rod, or your self. That sounds like a full on win to me.
