Re: Hypothetical question on mechanics

That is true too, Lasse It’s just training. To answer Jarmo’s question about can you watch it with closed stance, the answer is yes but only by turning your neck and not twisting at the waist to look around! The reason it often goes wrong is that the caster turns his body to look around and not his ...

Re: Hypothetical question on mechanics

It shouldn’t be necessary. You won’t see any accuracy caster watching his backcast in competition. If you watch it when taking shots the fish moves and you lose track of it. For distance of course, it’s useful to pick the target and make sure the area is unobstructed. But what I would recommend for ...

Re: Hypothetical question on mechanics

Hi chaps, How do you throw a popper 90ft, when aligned hand, elbow, eyes and throwing 12/6, and not smack yourself in the back of the head? Sorry I have a bit of catching up to do in this thread! If the fly is coming through low I think that indicates trajectory or slack line issues. Certainly it’s ...

Re: Tracking ... tracking ... tracking

That’s a good question Phil! I’d stick it in the tackle section. You definitely have to be careful that the line is not overweight which unfortunately seems to have become the normal with SW lines. I’d be looking for a 60ft head, long rear taper, bang on AFFTA. Going to be hard!

Cheers, Paul

Re: Whole line out!

Tomorrow I’ll start with 20ft out and add 3ft at a time until I can carry 90 with style. Might take a year. This is definitely the way to do it. How is your double haul? The speed has to feel like it’s coming from the haul, not wellying it back with the rod arm :) I like a bit of Tool or Pink Floyd...

A miniaturised portable machine would be a good idea.

Re: Whole line out!

I’d be interested to know what you listen to Craig. I often do the same.

Re: Elbow Out Style

Hi John, it has to go via YouTube and then embed it here. Alternatively you can send to me and I can do it. We do have a Sexyloops YouTube account for this. I can send you the details tomorrow.

Re: Elbow Out Style

OK I agree that there are times when we cannot make the perfect cast. There are brambles in every direction, we are swimming down the river trying to make a shot, laying in the bottom of the boat hiding under the seat, possibly we have dug ourselves into a rabbit burrow with only our wrist appearing...
