Fly Casters Gather to Throw a Few Loops in McKinney TOMORROW

| September 23, 2011

“Hello Everyone, I’m sending this to a few folks that might be interested in hearing about this get together. Feel free to pass this on to anyone else that might be interested.

We’re having a fly casting practice session in McKinney this Saturday and anyone that is interested is welcome to join us.

Here are the details:

Date: Saturday, September 24
Place: Town Lake Park (it is right off of Hwy 75 behind the movie theater) near the volleyball court (across the street from the high school) Note: we will be in BACK part of the park NOT by the highway.
Time: 9:30 am to 11:30 am (more or less)

As always, this will be a very informal event and everyone of all skill levels is welcome. We’ll have some spare rods available.

The general plan is to start the day with a casting demo or two, offer some casting help to anyone that wants it, and we’ll have some targets set up for casting practice.

Let me if you have a specific cast or topic that you’d like discussed and we’ll try to arrange it. At this point, I’m thinking about discussing distance casting. I am planning to bring a tape measure this time so anyone that is interested can find out how far they are actually casting. Casting against a tape can be a very humbling experience.

The address for the park is 1421 Wilson Creek Parkway, McKinney, Texas. The lake is visible from Hwy 75, and is located beside/behind the movie theater. If you are going north on 75, take exit #39. You’ll turn right at a red light that has a set of cross streets with a creek in between. Turn right on the second street (I think it is called “Park View”.) At the Stop Sign turn right again. The parking lot will be on the right and you should see the volley ball courts (sand) when you turn in. If you see the baseball fields, you will have gone too far. One of the high schools is across the street from the volley ball court.

I hope you can join us!”
