Does she fish or just cast (beautifully)?
It would be interesting to see if all that technical casting ability also amounted to catching ability.
I read the comment above in a forum the other day. It is in reference to Maxine McCormick’s amazing casting prowess —Maxine is a 14 year old girl with several world records in fly casting under her belt!!
I have heard that argument many times before around here. In my view it misses the point because the question that matters is:
If my technical ability were as good as that of Maxine, would it improve my catching ability and my overall enjoyment of fly fishing?
And the answer is YES, ABSOLUTELY!!!
