Re: Dangerous casting conundrum

It’s possible (if you don’t have tandem tube flies :p) to aerielise the cast so that instead of being a sustained anchor, you fold the line around in the air with a snap and just form the second anchor. I would happily do that with a dry fly for example - but tubes would be asking for trouble :) Ch...

Re: Dangerous casting conundrum

Thanks Paul I wanted to put the drone up and film it from directly above, but three times now I’ve had to switch it to sport mode and perform emergency evasive manoeuvres as oyster catchers get aggressive towards it and try knock it out of the sky! Despite claims of stuff like this being circus cast...

Re: Dangerous casting conundrum

Paul nailed it “once I sorted out my diagrams correctly”


I’ve done the left shoulder lift into a right shoulder delivery, with tube flies on and I wasn’t convinced each time it was the safest....:D

Re: 'Ideal loading point at the tip of the rod'........oh no!

When you Sweep the line around is there a point in the stroke where you think about forwming/delivering the D/V loop or does your attention stay with the line end? Sweep and casting stroke often blend, but can be separated. Coming (around the corner) in a single Spey for instance, you know you appl...

Re: Dangerous casting conundrum

I understand that and I’m just a fitter :D The wind arrow isn’t the best, it should indicate an upstream quarter, your understanding of the layout in your answer has proven this. Basically if you were fishing a river and the wind was front right and your fly can and must fish beyond the typical down...

Dangerous casting conundrum

Flow is from bottom of image to top. Typical strong Wind direction is green arrow. Caster casts along red line, line lands and swings right past typical dangle position, to fully in bank to blue line (many good takes at very end of swing) Often fishing with one maybe two tube flies armed with treble...

Re: New Student / Casting “tune-up”

I can related to this on forward casts too with shooting heads as much of my fishing is into front quartering headwinds, which reminds me I have a novel technique I’ve been using for a lot of years now which I wanted to post a video about, however the name of the cast will give away the mark and tha...
