Re: Straw Poll on Stepping

Thanks Andy, appreciate your comments. Interesting comment about your experiences with accuracy and your stepping leg. You're right, the platform forces some changes.

Thanks again,

Re: Straw Poll on Stepping

Thanks mate, it does and did. I'm going to document the two techniques for fly casting and the variations used by exponents of each technique. The most visible differences, and the discipline in which most variations of each technique are employed, is fly distance casting so I thought I would start ...

Re: Straw Poll on Stepping

Thanks Michal, appreciate your detailed reply.

You step with your rod leg on your forward cast for the Trout Distance but you do not step for the Sea Trout. Is there a reason as to why you do not step with the shooting head distance?

Thanks again,

John

Re: Straw Poll on Stepping

Thanks for your reply Lasse, appreciated. Stepping is certainly world's best practice for the Trout Distance. My interest is which leg and why that leg. I agree with you about timing. My only step was a follow through movement when competing on a platform, but when I started with the Trout Distance ...

Re: Straw Poll on Stepping

Thanks Paul, good points you raise, platforms being 1.5 metres long are definitely a factor. I agree, the step does assist in removing sag for the Trout Distance. Interesting point you make about the power of the cast. I have found that to occur also, for me it is a timing fault Appreciate your repl...

Straw Poll on Stepping

Hi All, I am attempting to document the different techniques used in casting fly distance and the variations within each technique. Stepping forward on the delivery cast is one such variation. Just a straw poll but who steps, what foot do you step forward with and why do you step with that foot (rod...

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

Thanks Daniel, appreciated. That absolutely supports my experiences with the 38 gram ICSF event and the counter flex generated.

Thanks,

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

I agree Paul, never experimented with the back haul, mine is always to a straight arm. I have experimented with the angle of the haul now that I cast long overhang with the 5 weight. My above comments on the haul are forward haul specific. I haul to a straight arm on the back cast for both heads and...

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

I'm no longer an advocate for the straight arm haul movement Paul. Used to be - a long haul with the hand continuing into follow through after the line release position. Maybe my arms have shrunk with age.
