Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Thanks Graeme, I’m the opposite to you. I get them rarely. It is interesting to me that you generate them with a truncated stroke or high RSP angle, whereas on your other videos without DN, that angle is less. I get them when I use a truncated stroke on a maximum carry but not on the same carry with...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Thanks for your video Graeme, I saw the dolphin nose on the short line cast. I suspect it is sourced to loop speed or lack thereof because it does not happen with a faster moving line. The videoed cast has very slow moving line forward and backward, the trajectory separated by greater than 180 degre...

Re: Analysing loop propagation 2

Hi Gary, Thanks for your reply, it is interesting because it is a term I had not heard of before I started casting the long carry events but it is a real line shape in that world. I just returned home from a cast, my first since 9th June. It was an interesting session. I started with the 5 weight ME...

Re: Analysing loop propagation 2

Thanks Paul, I had noticed them with my Trout distance and thinking about it maybe only when I have got to my maximum carry, however, that may be my lack of observation. Now that I am allowed to cast again, my interest has been sparked as to whether it is technique or condition caused. Interesting, ...

Re: Analysing loop propagation 2

No worries mate, look forward to that chat and a cast, hopefully next year. I am interested as I was casting some distance a few months back and a mate was saying many of my back casts and some (less) of my forward cast with the 5 weight MED had a dolphin nose. None were noticed when I used my 38 gr...

Re: Analysing loop propagation 2

Interesting as always Gents, I must have missed it but in a nutshell, what causes the dolphin nose and is the cause the result of rod movement?

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Hi All, Been that way for decades folks, well before the 5 weight distance was ever thought of. I love the light line events for a number of reasons but one is that it puts to bed once and for all the decades old response by some that ICSF competition casters only get the exceptional fly distances a...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Great photo Gary, thanks for posting. It illustrates my comments about throwing and casting in this thread. In respect of that, the ball, batt, discus, hammer, javelin or rod are not primary drivers to the distance achieved and that should underpin all technique development and the instruction there...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Thanks Graeme, appreciated. I was wondering if Marty was extending line during his false casts, prior to him shooting line on his delivery. I suspect he was, based on the varying height of line moving past his body on his backcast. It got lower as he added casts. Now that I know he was casting a car...
