I have been spending the better part of my weekends over the previous 4-5 weeks working on my fly casting form, trying to tighten up all the little areas I need to work on as a novice, and also trying to absorb as much information as possible that may lead to discoveries about what the weakest links in my approach are, which remedying would bring the greatest improvements to my fly angling.
