Find you’ve gone Rusty over Winter?

Find you’ve gone Rusty over Winter?

Winter is a bad time for for me: Five months lay-off without an opportunity to Spey-cast is no fun particularly if you are are as passionate about it as I am. I dont know about you but I find that this forced lay-off causes casting rust┬áto creep in, you know just like a bicycle chain when its left outside in the rain which ends up stiff and creaky and ┬ádoesnt seem to flow. Well thats just how my casting feels like, not as smooth and flowing as before. Rusty ­čÖü ….

… I am not talking about the basic Spey casting movements (they seem to be well programmed into my muscle memory) no, this rust┬ácauses jerky-not-so-smooth movements resulting in a noticeable amount of power loss on the forward cast. I find that upgrdaing my head weight for a given rod by about 30gr/2g helps me break through the rust, when later in the year I’m back in the flow┬áI can down line again.┬áTry it who knows it might help you throw off the rust.

let us know how you break down the winter casting rust.
