Re: Fly casting challenge 2

No. Sorry, I didn't read well enough what the exact challenge was.
I am not even going to try left handed. Will try blindfolded.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Fly casting challenge 2

I can do 90' for sure. Have been doing this a lot recently with a #5 DT and the #10 HT.
100' might be a challenge but I am definitely up for it.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Rod length to distance, it does not make sense

Hi Bart I take it you were hauling the hand casts? Cheers, Dirk Hi Dirk. This was indeed with hauling. Here is a rule of the thumb based on the assumption that distance achieved directly depends on line energy. If you divide rod length by 2, you loose 1/3 in distance. If you divide by 4 you loose h...

Rod length to distance, it does not make sense

Yesterday some of us dutch guys came together for some casting. Now I've got tons of excuses, but bottom line is I was not in my best shape and struggled to cast over 120ft. While trying to explain something to someone about the haul (details don't matter), I was casting without a rod. Without a rod...

Re: Scientific Anglers MPX Question

Not much to add to Lars his observations. I have the MPX in a #5 and #6, but only use them for students. They are very easy to cast and my students like them. They also have that compound taper which should delay turnover and improve presentation. I can’t comment on that since I have not used them f...

RIP Cornelis van den Adel

I am sad to say that we have lost Cornelis van den Adel. He passed away yesterday after a rather long fight against cancer. With him we lose the only international double handed competition caster Holland currently had. I really hoped to represent team NL at the next worlds with him, but it was not ...

Re: Which taper - What line?

Interesting subject. I think a lot of it comes down to personal taste. Personally I am a huge fan of the long head SA lines. (Expert Distance, Amplitude trout). The long rear taper promotes loop stability when aerializing a long line. The compound belly should promote a positive turnover at long ran...
