Re: Leader design and wind knots

Incidentally I think that is the first example video of tailing loops forming “wind knots“ that I have seen! Great stuff!! Me think so too! The reason I sat on the video so long is that I didn't actually make a knot during the 6 or 7 minutes of casting tails. I want to return with a longer leader a...

Re: Leader design and wind knots

The generally accepted answer is that it's happening early in your stroke if the crash appears late in the extension of the cast. (I don't know how true that is.)

Cheers,

Re: Leader design and wind knots

I shot the video ages ago but realised I wasn't getting "good knots" because my leader was too short. A longer leader lets the fly move with less input from the tangling line. Been meaning to go out again with a longer leader to really get them going but every Sunday is busy lately. Next opportunity...

Thanks Lasse. I'm not sure whether to be happy or not that one of my best clips shows some of the "worst" casting I've filmed ... ;)

Re: Leader design and wind knots

I have filmed this happening in slow motion but I don't have a great video to show. (I'll post the best one I have later tonight). The knot from a tailing loop occurs when the crossing of the legs allows the end of the system (normally the fly and tippet) to wrap around the rod leg. The interaction ...

The world needs a mega distance casting 3wt even if just for my Popping Shrimp flies 🥰.
Easy - just buy the HT8 and put a 3wt line on it. :D (See my message for more information ... )
Graeme’s review was not really for 4wt so he needs a 3wt also 👍👍👍
Nup, I don't need a 3wt. ;)

Re: Dolphin nose on the back cast?

Interesting you use pull back to achieve this, Graeme. Wouldn't this accelerate turnover and change the loop shape if you did it too much? I've never done that before for the dolphin nose shapes, i will have to try it. It's really only enough to stop the tip suddenly, and do so in close proximity t...
