Re: Analysing loop propagation

Berlin/Carl didn’t leave in frustration. He got married and moved to Canada. I know he left the casting world and had a complete change of life. For a while he actually disappeared off the planet and not only the Board! Different physics Board members back then, but they all disagreed with his “wave...

Re: Cleaning lines

Yes I can. Sorry I’m a bit behind. Chris Walker from Rio Hi Paul, It looks like you’ve got the right information from the competition already. Using a mild soap is the right answer for any PVC fly line (RIO, SA, most Cortland lines, and many OEM brands). These lines only remain flexible as long as p...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

It’s complicated and I just think it takes us down a rabbit hole. I don’t see the propagation of the loop wave as being vertical but if it is then wavelength is the height of the loop and amplitude is the unrolled loop. How is this going to help me?! For me that is totally meaningless. So as a proce...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

Yep that doesn’t help me at all :D I suppose the differences are tethered end and gravity. But I have definitely moved two steps closer to James :D

Sorry I brought it up :cool:

Cheers, Paul

Re: That whuuumpin' feeling

Yep I was also thinking about that John, and start with the cast beginning at the ground up. It really just depends on the caster in question. Everyone is a little bit different in how they learn. And some are a lot different :D

Re: Analysing loop propagation

So in a flu cast the wave is travelling upwards?
I have to spend some time thinking about that. I think I may be shifting more towards James’ view :D

Back later.

Re: That whuuumpin' feeling

It really depends. Some times I teach to “lead with the butt”, other times to “think heavy”, “feel for the weight of the line”, flicking a potato off the tip (not actually a real spud but an imaginary one), forward casts only, backcasts only, casting in slow motion, dynamic rolls to teach delayed tu...

Re: Cleaning lines

Excellent front page. I have a reply from Simon now too but we are finding out about their recent lines to double check. If anyone wants me to check with another manufacturer let me know.

Cheers, Paul
