    I believe that the best way to learn is to go with a guide or someone that is willing to teach you. Dont worry about catching the fish of a life time with them, but watch what they are doing. Then you can see how its done, and ask questions all day long. If you catch fish thats great. I hired a guide when I moved to Charlotte from MD and told him up front that I wanted to learn and catching fish is a good thing, but I wanted to learn.

    We had Roundhill out last night at the Carolina Catfish Club meeting and he is full of knowledge and says he drifts 90% of the time.

    Look under tool bar at top of page Member Library Table of Contents lots of drifting info in there. Run the treads lot info about drifting and drift socks, drift rigs.
    Good advice is hire a guide they will be glad to teach you how to fish the Santee lakes.

    You missed a great oppurtunity to learn from a master!

    Roundhill is also a guide and worth EVERY PENNY! I agree with Billfish76 in hiring a guide. I learned the basics from hiring a guide years ago, and saved MONTHS, if not years, of trying it myself.

    Troy, you can learn a few details about drift fishing at Mac Byrum's Catfish University. I have a couple articles about this techniques. Go to http://www.catfish1.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=433

    You can also order a DVD from Catfish Connection called "Drifting for Blues", which has some good info.
