Q. When is going forward useful?

A. Traveling forward is one of the greatest benefits of the system. There are MANY ADVANTAGES TO BEING ABLE TO TRAVEL FORWARD: approaching feeding fish, keeping an eye on obstacles coming in to shore, getting to the fish who have buried themselves in the weeds, retrieving the snag on the stump or branch. The best thing about traveling forward is not having to constantly turn your head around to see where you are going.  You are in total control.
