"I Have Mad Skills"

October 13, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

You may have mad skills, Alex O’Loughlin, but you might want to pick up a copy of Joan Wulff’s “Dynamics of Fly Casting” before going trout fishing again. The idea is for the fly line to gradually release it’s kinetic energy; that bullwhip crack is the noise of wasted effort. “I grew up fishing for trout. I’m not the best fly fisherman, but I can fly-fish, because I crack a whip. I learned to crack a whip as a boy, out on the properties.”
We’ll still watch you on “Three Rivers,” though.
