Those of you who know me understand that I am the “anti-guru” when it comes to casting. I say casting matters for beans. At least on a river. And some of those “certified” whips who equate fly casting to quantum physics, I believe, are BS merchants who create more problems (by intimidation) than they solve.

But now I find myself on yet another saltwater foray (this one for stripers), and I realize casting matters most here. Maybe I should take some lessons. This is, after all, an entirely different sport. Any gurus wanna help?
