Here are parts of a previous topic
I had a few queries about 'fishing' but couldn't help
Perhaps some body else can?


1)What is the best Propless and/or Impromptu
Mentalism Effect, Move or bit of business that you have actually done or seen done or heard about?

Best Methodology Name a thought of card by Stephen Tucker. We were discussing 'fishing' He did it to me so smoooothly that I was absolutely amazed even though I knew what he was doing

2)Hi Rich
I was talking to Stephen (Tucker) at a friend's house
I mentioned that I thought most people would find 'fishing' easy to spot in most cases
He asked me to think of a card.
I did so and he 'fished' me and named the card
I knew the methodology he was using but was awed by his confident manner, skill and smoothness
So were the other 'magicians' there
A lay person would have been baffled
Cheers

Hi Jordan

Name a thought of card is a class of effect where the subject is challenged to 'Just think of a card' ie do not take, point at, or in any way, touch that card
Fishing is is a class of method for finding out what the card was

He asked me to think of a card.
I did so and he 'fished' me and named the card

I don't know if he has put anything out on his 'method'
I will see him in a few weeks and ask him
Hope that clears things up
Cheers

That cleared things more than enough for me. Thankyou. Though I was only asking whether his method is on the market. Thankyou anyway.

How many of you do fishing? how do you make the no(s) vanish?
how many of you do actually use anagramms?
is there anybody here who says `yes, I do´?

I do not fully understand what you mean byt the 'yes I do'
I used to do the star sign effect found on Marc Pauls Mind 2 Mind I think.
I think for the effect to work you need to try and make it seema s the you are just sort of feeling letters coming towards you or that their is a slight confusion of which letters are coming to you. Also a lot of practise and you can use a little bit of lip or mouth reading as I suppose it is realy to help define the word.
This basicaly means that when you ask the spectator to think of the word ask them to say it to themselves in their head. Then watch their mouth and lips. They sometimes make slight motions as they word the words to themselves, plus if their mouth is open you omay even e able to see their tounge which can also help immensly.
Hope this makes sense to you.

Thanks for your answer jordan
with `yes I do´ I wanted to know if there is anybody who uses such techniques (as anagrams) with success.

in my opinion, if someone knows the principle of fishing you can hardly deceive him - be it a tossed out deck or whatever.
I may be completely wrong with that. but I just don´t trust that things very much.
