Graeme: Looking forward to your video.
Sorry, it can't happen this weekend. It's just too windy. :(

Cheers,

Re: Q: How does hauling work?

Hi Jarmo,

If I get a chance this weekend, I'll shoot some slow motion footage of a hauled cast with a marked line.

Cheers,
Graeme

Re: Question about tails

Hi Paul :pirate: ;), Interesting. When the accelerational rod plane and the loop plane are different, what causes such a dip in loop plane then? Can't be the typical too sudden burst of force application killing the smooth increase in rod bend anymore though, right? Because that one would cause a d...

Re: So... what is number 6?

I tried to sign up to watch it but it was "sold out". Not that I was worried, to be honest - the FFi needs to get over this North American centred philosophy if that "i" is ever going to mean something. (Are these casts from north America only applicable there? Did they originate there? East Coast o...

Re: Question about tails

Hi Graeme, I don't understand how you came to that conclusion. Maybe we are having a language issue here. "Vertical direction" to me means "earth to sky" (or opposite). I hardly ever aim may loops to move that direction. My loops usually propagate (move) more or less in the direction of the fish. D...

Re: Question about tails

Well, a tailing loop ALWAYS was defined as caused by a dip in the accelerational tip path within rod plane. Thus the oeak ofcthe resulting wave in the fly-leg can't be in opposite direction. For me, that only indicates you were ALWAYS talking about loops propagated in the vertical direction. I see ...

Re: Question about tails

Ahh... so much clearer now! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: I'll just shut up and listen. But, if we are going to talk about that S shaped tip path from the horizontal plane... has anyone ever tried to skip a fly? That path is what I have tried, but admittedly I gave it up as I could not get it under contr...

Re: Question about tails

No that’s why I started the discussion! It’s probably because the rod leg it “tethered” between the loop front and rod tip whereas the fly leg is unsupported at the fly end. Certainly 180 degree inverted loops are more prone to opening from underneath and colliding with the water. This contrasts to...

Re: Question about tails

Thanks, Graeme. Excellent video. In my experience all distance experts when driving a fluff to their max distance often get several knots in their leaders, but very rare in the fly line itself. ... HI Bernd, The leader here is VERY short and the casts were also quite short so that I was able to put...
