Accuracy casting, again

When accuracy casting, I have a real problem judging the distance of my fly.
I try to hit 60cm targets. The ones at 15m only get in with luck.
I do hover. Any tips, or is this a matter of practising?

Cheers, Bart

Re: Progressive rod?

Good question Carlos. Looking forward to the replies. I used to think that it is a rod that bends gradually to the butt as you increase de load on the tip. However. With this definition I can bend every rod progressivly, depending on the arc I am bending it in. So, I don’t know the answer. Cheers, B...

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

Jeez Bart! You've been to two BFCC meetings and broken the #5 record twice - how much more do you want to beat us by? :p :D :D :D Have you thought about laying off distance and practicing accuracy :???: :D :pirate: Haha. I am not sure that I will ever be satisfied. Unless the line travels wrinkle f...

Re: Slow down on the backcast

Hi Bernd. Paul might explain it better. I told my student to slowly come backwards and at around 1 o-clock when he wants to stop the rod, squeeze the handle. I think because he was focused on squeezing late, at the start he was holding the rod gentle and accelerating slowly. To be honest, I didn't t...

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

Hi Dirk. I will make a video of it.
Would like a setting similar to Paul's video. It shows the line very clear.
Will look for a good place to shoot it and get back to it soon.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

I didn't check it. Will do. I am fast as hell! :666: It seems like there is always a little bit of sack in the line. Which is enough to make it tick. I could not find a lot of clear video material, but I found this video of Paul in Malaysia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9KgWWUGTBM His line looks...

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

Lasse, I tried loads of different things today.
Also my old style.
Long story short, I can’t carry more than 84ft without ticking the high grass.
That is less than I would like in low wind conditions, but still gives me decent distance.
