Re: Best THCI line

You and I passed it with long belly lines, Lasse. But we did make the Spey casting harder for ourselves - and the overhead casting easier. Really we should have done it the other way because the Spey casting requirements are relatively harder. It is a different skill set to lift and turn around a ME...

Re: Shooting Heads?

That’s awesome Dave. I’m sure someone will give you a better answer on the head issue than me! When I fished for Bull Trout with Matt the first run through the pool we used string leech streamers and then I would turn around and fish upstream NZ Nymphing style, with lots of weight and a glo bug. I c...

Re: Thoughts on the Hardy HBX, good rod!

No I don’t have a casting style named after me :p (I have a casting ‘style’ of course but that’s a separate issue). I would always teach ‘closed stance accuracy’ and ‘Rajeff-distance’ styles. I usually include ‘Oval Casting style’ (but not very deep) and, with a better caster, the ‘170/Stopless’ sty...

Re: Excellent FP on modeling

This is great, man. I can see now that you are coming to fish how are brains are working together. We certainly won't be needing walkie talkies if we separate, instead we can use telepathy. I will buy some PVC tubing for a repeatable starting position at the beginning of the forward cast. Three or f...

Re: Best THCI line

I would actually love to have a candidate where it actually is the gear making the difference between passing or failing, haven't had that yet I would think that most who have passed AAPGAI and certainly AAPGAI Masters would really struggle to get through the Spey casting requirements with a Double...

Re: Thoughts on the Hardy HBX, good rod!

is this the stroke you use now by the way? Sometimes. I don't really think about it any more in my own casting to be honest. I suppose for most casts I'm a puller. But I also use Thrust, particularly Torque Twist which is a sort of Thrust, which is interesting because it's also consider it a form a...

Re: Excellent FP on modeling

Perhaps in addition to casting a chain we could cast something that offers a HUGE amount of drag to see if we can generate some visible or measurable lift? I've just tried casting some fritz chenille but I only have a very small section. If we had a long piece maybe we can actually get a situation w...

Re: Posting on the Board - how to...

Hey here is an addition for you that is very cool. You can directly copy and paste images into the Full Editor box and it will sort them out for you. This also allows you to use keyboard smilies as some of you have already figured out. :pirate:
