Re: Fly rod design

I think that technically it is possible to build sleeve ferrule blank using mandrel which is shorter than the target rod will be building two blanks which then are cut so that pieces fit. Naturally there comes more waste and it might be too complicated to mass produce blanks that way but for hobbyis...

Re: Fly Line Database

But when the core and coating densities are not constant the diameter does not very well produce comparable data. Perhaps you can calculate profiled line volume but you still need to weight same length as well. I have first measured length of solid scrab line weight in a cup and then cut it and it h...

Re: Fly Line Database

I think the diameter table does not produce accurate data because line density is not constant. Accurately measuring lengths which then are put to a scale will produce good and accurate data. Marking one meter from table end is fast and accurate way to measure line length. Someone wrote that he can ...

Icaria Greece?

I have spent many hours blind casting various salt water flyes on few Greece islands I have visited without takes and I have seen only rare "followers" which I would call a game fish. I have got few mullet bites when matching the hatch offering a Bread fly :p

Fly Line Database

I coil the marked length of line and put it to a cup on scale and hold the mark parallel, three inches out of cup rim and keep my hand six inches away same height the cup rim is holding the rest of line and I get very accurate weight readings.

who is the inventor of the snake roll and the snap T cast?

In this old video Göran Andersson does some kind of Snap. Setting the anchor does not differ much from Snap-T. He keeps rod very upright when he sweeps but GA does Single Spey back cast same way.
