Default School project... in and outs of flippin a jig!

Got a pretty cool project in english class I gotta do. It's a public speakin sorta thing, and we had a few different categories of things to do. I picked to do a demonstration. It's gotta be 8-10 minuets long.

I chose to demonstrate and explain the ins and outs of flipping and pitching a jig. I picked this because it's the easiest thing fishing related to demonstrate in side a class room other then tying knots which not everyone could really see.

On to the point......

If you where going to explain to someone, perhaps here on the forum, or writing an article on how to flip and pitch a jig. How would you organize it whole thing for em? I'd like to start out in a way that each thing would build on its self. So rather then BOOM going into the actual flipping of the jig, I'd like to start out explain choosing gear. Or perhaps starting on WHEN and WHAT conditions you want to flip a jig. Or do you think I should start with something else?

I'm not asking for tips or anything like that, I'm asking how you would explain - start and finish - on how to flip a jig, having each thing build on it's self.

Thanks for any help guys.

I would begin by stating the problem/challenge that pitching solves. Word it however you want but something along the lines of....you must present/place a small object to a very small specific target very quietly yada yada..

Goin of ken's idea, tell you need to get to this small place cause fish sit locked to structure in certain conditions, but definately need to present what pitching helps

I did the exact same thing back in High School. I had to do a demonstration speech in speech class. So I chose to demonstrate how to cast a fishing rod. Not sure pitchin was even used back in those days, lol. Anyways, I started out by explaining the rod and reel and how to properly hold both, and then the specifics of how to cast. Proper angle of the wrist and all. I put a paper plate near the back of the class as a target and made a few casts while showing again the proper technique to throw the lure and such. But importantly, I asked volunteers to come up and give it a try. My teacher pointed out to me that having people come up to try casting the rod, getting the crowd involved hands on, earned me a better score. Good luck with your assignment.

You better take a Zebco if you planning on getting volunteers or a few spare reels hahahaha.
Just like Ken said, start with the purpose of pitching/flipping, go in to the equipment used (You are on TT enough, you should know everything down to the particles the material is made of), and then demonstrate. Easy 8-10 min and never let them see you sweat and keep your hands out of your pockets. Nothing worse than watching a speaker unknowingly play pocket pool to cover his nervousness.

Remember to choose words that your audience can understand. If you gave the presentation to us, you'd be preaching to the choir. Good luck! Let us know how it goes. I gave a little presentation to tying knots for a group seniors and thought I had my bases covered. I didn't realize that having magnifying glasses would have been handy as well as using hooks with bigger eyes. Did I mention their hands shook too much to effectively tie a knot? Yikes! If I make it to their age, I hope someone will be around to tie my knots if I can't!

Sammy, you may want to watch this video of Denny Brauer... he demonstrates flipping and pitching in this video, and talks about any and everything to do with flipppin and pitching. He explains things very well, and it may give you some organization ideas for your speech. The videdo is over an hour long, so it should give you some good ideas on where to place things in your speech.

http://www.bassmaster.com/video/bass...g-and-pitching

I did things like this in high school all the time, and fishing related speeches got me alot of blank stares by friends, but hey they say to talk about what you know, and this is what we all know best. Good Luck!

Ryan

You might also show and explain the differences between a casting and a flipping jig and why there is a need for those differences. For an opening you might try something like why you enjoy fishing and one of your favorite baits is a jig and a couple of the most effective ways to fish a jig is flipping and pitching to heavy cover, and then start to break it down from there.

Thanks guys! Love the ideas so far, I'll watch the video Ryan, thanks for the suggestion!

Keith, I love the idea of getting everyone involved! I'll have to check with my teacher to see if I can!

You don't check with the teacher, you make it happen MAN! It's your speach! When I worked in Singapore, I gave a weekly safety presentation to 100+ sometimes and 50-75 a week now. That's how you keep the dozers and drifters in to it. Let them know that you will be calling on a few of them from the class to assist with the demonstration and people tend to be a little bit more attentive. If you have too many drifters and dozers your presentation sucks! hahahaha. I am mainly razzing you Boss, but control it and take initiative. Like Keith's teacher, she liked his initiative to be creative and different. And clip the hook off the jig before you take it to school. We are liable to see you in the liberal news for being armed with a deadly weapon in school if you don't.

LMAO! How true that is! I'll probably put a rubber keeper on the hook to keep it protected... I'd like to uses these jigs when I'm done!

Great job!
I passed on the report to my fellow cheesheads.
They are really happy because GRADUATION is almost a guarantee!
Oh, a couple asked, for your trip back south do you prefer a stagecoach (Cowboy style) or should we be talking to Sea World to see how to transfer Dolphins?

Seriosly, I'm really happy you did a great job. I wish I could of attended, I bet it was a work of ART!

Good for you man, it was always fun in school when you had a project to do but could do it on one of your hobbies.

I actually could use a demo on pitching!
