Resin

Hi Lou, I've been following this thread and I don't get a feeling you're getting a good answer to your question about the 'modulus'. In composites, a designer usually strives to get 'strain-compatibility' between the binder and the reinforcement. The 'modulus', here it's about tensile and/or flexura...

Oakhurst Yosemite

Hi, I live in Oregon but I've spent considerable time in the region of California near Oakhurst. That time of the year will be still quite warm and the water will be low flows and low reservoirs levels will be unfavorable. I'm familiar with the Pine Flat Reservoir on the Kings River. I think the wat...

Repairing fibre glass hulls

Paul, There are two more common resins used in fiberglass repair systems. Probably the most common one is polyester resin cured with MEKP and cobalt. Water will seriously inhibit the polyester/MEKP resin. The second one is an epoxy based resin. Water can emulsify the curing agent in epoxies, but the...

Intermediate line..

Tomo, I use the Rio Lake Series AquaLux in WF6I on a fast action 5/6wt rod, and I cast some large streamers with good carry and distance. Then I have Rio Lake Series WF8I AquaLux for my 8wt rod that I thought I needed for the large streamers, but I rarely use it. I also have Rio Lake Series InTouch ...

Pike fishing

I use Rio Toothy Critters leader with a wire bite tippet. It comes with a snap, but I found that they don't always last. I then use a Davy Knot to attach a fly. It holds fast with the wire, but I can then open the knot fairly easily and remove the fly. Putting the next fly on is easy because of the ...

Welcome Dr William McGlinn

Steve: line tension (which is the force acting in line shoot) is given by the momentum change per unit time in the loop. Grunde - Please show your work, as they used to say in school. I understand that arm waving generality. I'm looking for it to be described in equations. I did that by modeling th...
