I only get the twists in the slack line behind the line hand, no slack, no twists...

Re: Being fit

Hi Paul, I have been experimenting with different versions of periodic fasting for around 7-8 years now. I have tried the 5/2 diet but the version that suits me best is called 18/6. It means that for each day and night (24 hours) you have a 6 hour long stretch where you are allowed to eat. During th...

Re: One place to fish...

My problem would to go somewhere I haven’t been, or fish somewhere I know and love? Exactly. I have fished a certain nearby river since I was a boy. And today me and my flyfishing-club take care of it in various ways. I have fished that river so many times, I have had so many nice experiences there...

Re: \|/ or \\\|/ Push Vs Pull, rotating through the stroke or at the end of the stroke

Hi Paul,

OK. 3 is as an example of what I would call rotation throughout the stroke with "increased rate of rotation" (most of the rotation comes in late in the stroke). Semantics then.

In reality almost all casters rotate throughout
Agree. A lot of translation is also in fact slide. But good casters increase the rate of rotation through the stroke. (I don't know if that makes sense - english is not my first language..)

Re: late rod rotation and softer rods

Hi James, I practice and fish a lot with soft (and stiff) rods. As Paul says - with soft rods you really need to be smooth. With a stiff rods I sometimes try to delay the the rotation for as long as possible. With soft rods I rarely do so. When casting up to say 25 meters there is simply no need to ...

Re: Late haul - early release

Hi! Lasse: Hauling faster makes sense! Paul: MCL -that's a new one for me. What does it mean? Maximum counter linespeed? :laugh: :laugh: By the way - I am going to start practicing the snakehead-shot. Is there a reason you don't haul on the backcast? Would not a haul speed up the backcast? /Thomas

Late haul - early release

Hi everybody,

I have been thinking about hauling late and releasing the line early. How does this work? If I haul very late it seems that the release will be reasonably late as well? Or else the haul will be short? I haul late but I have never practiced releasing early.

Cheers,

Thomas
