Kayaks advise needed.

Thanks for all the advice. From the different reviews I have read I would do well with a 10ft kayak. 12ft to 14ft are better suited to rougher, larger waters? One of the most common problems I have read is carrying handles often breaking and hard to replace. Any of you had this problem? Some have mu...

Kayaks advise needed.

My wife and I are looking for kayaks. We will use them mostly on Oklahoma lakes or slow moving waters. My wife finds it easier to row with a "sit on top" style. Any suggestions, advice, past experiences (good or bad), even point me in the right direction for learning about kayaks would be greatly ap...

Error on Google Nexus 7 tablet ?

I too get an error. For myself it happens when I have WiFi turned off. When I have WiFi turned on I can not recreate the error. Even if no WiFi is in range. I'm using a Samsung SGH-I997 build number gingerbread.UCLB3.

Now that you actually show me how to cast correctly it has helped me out even more and in a very shor...

Haul Confusion

Line hitting the tip of the rod is not a major problem and can easily be fixed by lifting the elbow into the backcast and pulling down with the elbow on the forward cast. This way you should be able to throw narrow loops off the tip without a haul. I will work on that today. Heading up to Canton. S...

Haul Confusion

Thanks Paul, Brad, when you try this, try backing off on the rod power and concentrate on feeling and controlling the cast with the haul. Ie allow the haul to coordinate the cast. This I do understand, " The Experience " Less Power Less Power Less Power "I can assure you that by the end you will sti...

Consumers say I'm using the wrong fly.

I was trying to research if “eyes” added value to a fly and I came across an old F&S article . It discussed Umpqua's top selling 25 trout flies of the previous year. The results was not what I expected. I was expecting sales to be directly proportional with quantity of fish caught. I have some ideas...

Haul Confusion

Thank you for the reply Bernd, Wulff referes to her powersnap. That is "main rotation" in my book. So I understand her advice to be about starting the line hand pull when starting the main rotation of the rod via rod hand (power snap). This is what I have been suggesting, too. I was misinterpreting ...

Haul Confusion

Wulff says began haul at power snap. Krieger says began haul at the same time as rod loading movement. Each of you have different opinions. As a beginner caster I will practice/attempt all techniques but which path would you suggest first to build a good foundation?
