Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend some good "how to" video's on demonstrating how to pitch/flip.

Thanks,

Esox

Just you tube it. That helped me. Plus it's good to see a few different people doing it. I'm pretty sure Bassresource has a really good video of it.

It took me a couple of years to learn how to pitch with confidence. I can now pitch with both left and right hands with tension turned completely off.

I can only flip with my right hand though.

Practice, practice

I find myself pitching almost all the time I make any cast less than 10 yards now.

My neighbors all think I'm a little nuts for "fishing" in my yard all the time. I am improving my pitching skills though. I fish with a guy who is a master, and I have to get better to keep from embarrassing myself, and hit the an occasional prime spot. Watching someone who is really good has made a huge difference. I thought I knew what I was doing until I started fishing with him. Nope. Don't make it too easy when you practice...pitch under a bush, your truck, boat trailer, swing set, lawn chair-you never know where that big one will be hiding.

Does anyone set their reel guide at the center of the spool before the pitch? I wanted to try this when I get my reel back from repair.

After watching as many videos as you can,definitely go out in your front/back yard and set up targets at different distances, I used my dogs bowls as targets and it was really pleasing to hear the loud "ding" everytime I got it. This will improve accuracy which is what pictching is all about. As for flipping, just do the same thing at shorter differences since flipping is for when you are pretty close to cover you want to hit hard.
