I saw Mel Krieger at a Virginia fly fishing festival a few years back. He was giving a clinic on casting. I was blown away by how natural he made the activity of waving a stick in the air look. I bought a DVD of his a day after the festival. I still go back to it whenever I feel my casting motion straying.
Mel passed away last week from cancer. My thoughts are with his family . The fly fishing community has lost a great teacher. I’m glad he made videos and DVDs to pass on to future generations.
