Re: Rod reviews

What makes me write this is that I don't have much experience of that many rods and when I read about the cons of some rods they list "less accuracy in the short range" or "great accuracy". I thought accuracy depends more on how accurate the caster is than how accurate the rod is. A long time ago i...

Re: CCI Burn Out

Hi Marshall Like other posters I am sorry you had the experience you describe so well and courageously. When we read a personal story like yours I guess we all underline, figuratively, the parts we identify with most strongly as well as the parts that run contrary to our own experience. With both th...

Re: Barbes vs barbless

Another barbless angler here. Good for fish, good for anglers. A couple of years back in Tassie a guy wandered into camp with a barbed fly stuck in his ear. He had tried several other boats and camper groups and they knocked him back. Took it out on an all-care-no-responsibility basis complete with ...

Re: Casting thoughts

After reading Berlin's posts about tension i did not understand much on the beginning,  but more I cast( distance) and more I try to figure it out what to improve in my casting I come to the conclusion that TENSION in the loop is the key.... G'day Mike I agree line tension is a key driver of castin...

Re: Dolphin nose on the back cast?

I think you may not have seen them on other people's videos because it's not common for people to concentrate on the form of their back cast. Spot on Graeme. General comment. It makes a big difference when we start thinking about making two forward casts one of which goes behind us. :) Well that's ...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

People are buying the ‘over weight’ lines because they want very obvious feedback, they want to feel the ‘rod bending’... they don’t like the lighter feel of a true weight line. Agreed and it fits with people overpowering their casts in the (vain) belief that oomph will compensate for dodgy techniq...

Re: What the Body Does: Fly Casting, Biomechanics and Sensory Motor Learning

I’m not sure that you are opening it to a wider audience by discussing “biomechanics and sensory motor learning”, for me that is even more niche! :p Other way around Paul. Trying to open the niche inhabitants to a wider world of useful ideas and relevant knowledge. Not trying to recruit more people...

Re: What the Body Does: Fly Casting, Biomechanics and Sensory Motor Learning

Thanks for all the thanks folks. There is not much more on the detail of Biomechanics and Sensory Motor Learning that I want to say. The first paragraph of the OP says how important I think it is. My contribution to these related subjects is small potatoes at about 12.5k words. Even so comparatively...
