The sign for "Fresno" as in "Fresno, California" is done by casting
an "F" hand forward twice. The movement is in the wrist. At
the beginning of the sign, the middle, ring, and pinkie fingers are
pointing mostly up. Then you flip your hand forward a bit and your
middle, ring, and pinkie fingers point forward. If you've ever
been fishing, (or even if you haven't) imagine the type of movement
you make when you flip the rod forward. I don't know if there
is any good "fishing" in Fresno, but that would make a heck of a
good "memory aid" (hint, hint).
