Casting Tip August 2015

The Guru’s Basic Casting Principles and / or Essentials

I thought it would be both fun and informative to examine different guru’s basic casting principles and / or essentials. There are quite a few gurus out there so this may take a while but after we have a few it should be fun to compare and contrast. Since these are opinions, and everyone knows what they say about opinions, I will in no way attempt to critique one over another. All of these ideas have been generated by great casting instructors. I will start with a handout Lefty Kreh used at an event in the 1990’s.  Since his ideas have evolved over time his newer thoughts will show up later.

Next month some more “essentials” of casting.

If anyone has a topic they would like to see discussed send them to and they will appear in a future newsletter.
