Have you ever wondered after a day of fly fishing how many times you cast your fly. Was it to much or not enough. Maybe to much kind of like target shooting, send enough rounds to the target sooner or later you will hit it same in fly casting. Next time you go out limit the number of casts you allow yourself per section of water. This will open up a lot of questions you need to ask yourself before your first cast. Say you give yourself ten casts on a section of water and you can't go over your limit. This will really open up your mind. Do I have the right fly on for this stretch of water, where are the fish holding (80% of the fish live in 20% of the water) you need to break the water down into sections, what is the best presentation for a perfect drift. Once you limit your casting, presentation which is about 80% of fly fishing will become a major factor in your fly casting. Limiting your casting will also slow you down and help you become more aware of your surroundings. Also to what is going on or not going on giving you the opportunity to adjust to catch fish. Fish more cast less the best one could possibly be is (one cast one fish) hard to imagine but a goal never the less. Slow down, cast less fish more and see what is going on. See if your cast to fish ratio improves at least your back won't hurt as bad at the end of the day.

That makes a lot of sense. I am doing to focus on this as well.

I have been fly fishing and tying flies for over forty five years now and still learning, that's the beauty of this great pastime you can never know it all. I hope through this blog I can share some of the things I have picked up along the way. And through your comments learn even more.
