    Thumbs up The Goatlips Casting pages

    I want to make sure some of our newer members have knowledge of this resource.

    http://goatlipstips.cas-town.com/index.html

    A fine job explaining some of the basics and lots of help refreshing some tidbits that some of us may have forgot.

    For me, Goatlips site put it all together. I could see one version of how it all should look and I now use mostly his way to do the job.

    When I was first trying to get started, Goatlips was kind enough to give me some advice and his site was very helpful. Hats off to Goatlips.

    The link doesn't work anymore. Why is this still a sticky?
    (I apologize in advance if everybody else's computer pulls it right up.)

    You can still get to it this, but no pics: http://web.archive.org/web/201002050...com/index.html . Good way to get dead links if just the text will help.

    Well, I just took the advice that has been repeated over and over and over and decided to read all the stickies that I could. I'm finding quite a few that are old and busted but still floating. I guess I'm not the only one who never reads 'em eh?

    What I generally do now is print to PDF if there is info I really want. I used to save to favourites but if the site moves or is shut down then the information is lost.

    By printing to PDF you get a copy for future reference. Some print well and some don't but there is almost always some way to save the info you want.

    The Goatlips site had some good info for sure. It is a shame it has been lost.

    Longbow;
    I started doing the same thing a couple of years ago when several sites were lost to me. I use the free Utility "PDF Creator" as it works extremely well.

    Unfortunately, I had failed to print anything from Goatlips site...
