Re: Casting a heavy line with a small versus a big fly

Nope from the US. I’ll remember later today when I’m thinking about something else.

Re: Casting a heavy line with a small versus a big fly

I’ve reread this topic and I assume that the big flies are very non aerodynamic. I had a similar problem core once when casting a phffbffbp almost 20 years ago The idea of the phffbffbp was that it would make a noise like a raspberry through the air so you could experiment with your timing. I can’t ...

Re: Teaching the jump roll?

I do but I get my best results without hauling on the backcast. I think it’s because there is some loss of tension on the haul return. I mostly do it because it’s simpler and more natural to haul that way.

Re: Teaching the jump roll?

Back or forward? Back I think is tip path and force. Front is haul, tip path and force.

I think the front loop off a dynamic roll is very similar to delayed force on a distance cast. So much so in fact, that it’s very common for me to use the dynamic roll to teach this.

Re: Swedish Worlds 2020

As I understand it there has been some challenges with the ICSF. I don’t know much about it but I’m sure we will learn.

Re: Teaching the jump roll?

It’s funny, I don’t usually use analogies for that. For years I used to use a shepherd’s crook. But it looks nothing like this. So I’m surprised that worked. :D Jump Roll is an interesting one to teach. It’s one of those where I teach the components, the faults, teach them how to teach themselves - ...
