Bill, Chad Evans has been out of dog games for at least 11 years.He moved from Cal. to Utah. I have a BLF I got as a pup from him that will be 11 next month. I don't think he's even breeding labs any more. I'll throw a name out there as one of the best I've seen and that's Bill Cox.Distance and placement and a great shot to boot.

Another good "arm" is/was Andy Attar. Bill, you remember one of the nationals where they had a gun station throwing off a hill and down into a slough with nasty going. Andy started the series but after they replaced him nobody got the bird down where it needed to be. All the replacement throwers had to walk further out/down to try and get the bird to the right spot. Another guy with a good arm was Dave Mosher.
Anybody remember the game Jarts?I think it`s outlawed now.You took a big dart looking thing and tried to pitch it in a 3 ft. circle,the distance you were supposed to play was 20 yds.
Dad brought this game home one day and said you`re playin.Set it up at 60 and said practice!!!!Took me a few years to figure out what his goal was but dad always had a plan....Jim
Throwing a flyer is becoming a lost art. I have seen a fair amount of people throw a nice dead bird,,,but I have seen relatively few throw a good flyer. Richard P taught me how to throw a flyer and I remember him distinctly telling me a nice big flyer makes the test. That was about 25 years ago. There is simple physics involved in throwing a good flyer . I have tried to pass down this info to many people over the years only to be poo pooed. 95 percent of the people who throw flyers in the retriever sport are phase 2 throwers.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Psalms 12: 8
The wicked walk on every side when the vilest men are exulted
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
