Basic Casting from A to Z. Student's Instruction Booklet.
Zebco, Tulsa, OK.
A profusely illustrated student instruction booklet contains step-by-step directions and diagrams for learning four basic casting techniques. Separate sections cover basic spin-casting, spinning, bait-casting, and fly-casting. Each section details recommended equipment (reel, rod, line, plug, tackle, lures, leaders, flies), describes specific casting techniques, and provides drawings and information about the types of fish caught using each technique. Section 1 covers overhead and side casts made with closed-face spin-casting reels and rods, using light-to-medium monofilament line to catch smallmouth bass, chain pickeral, and red-ear sunfish. Section 2 focuses on overhead and side casts made with open-face spinning reels and rods, using balanced spinning tackle to catch brook trout, sauger, northern pike, black crappie, and white bass. Section 3 includes information about overhead bait-casts made with level-wind reels and bait-casting rods, using 10-14-pound test line and surface, floating-diving, and sinking lures to catch bullhead, bluegill, largemouth bass, walleye, and muskellunge. Section 4 considers the overhead cast and line hand techniques, using manual fly reels, fly rods, and wet or dry flies to catch rainbow trout and American shad. A reference section diagrams and describes knots (improved blood knot, improved clinch knot, nail knot) and the morphology of a fish. (NEC)
