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...

Re: Slow down on the backcast

Hi Bart Always hard to offer a useful opinion without knowing the student or their skill level and without seeing them cast. I assume you have them watching the back cast so the problem should be in sight and also that you have demonstrated correct tempo and power moderation. A few things come to mi...

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

Some of you will have seen the series I wrote on the mechanics of fly casting which arose from my unhappiness with the existing material on the subject. Mechanics is about the application of force and it tells you why things work or don’t work. By itself, however, fly casting mechanics doesn't have ...

Re: Weedless Frog

Here is the "weedless" pencil popper in all of its simplistic beauty. The fly does what it is supposed to do. It is not sexy but it works rather well. One of my fishing buddies coined it "the miracle worker". I like it a lot Gary. Rarely get the chance to fish poppers but can tell a lot of thought ...

Re: Lift force acting on a fly line

Graeme, thanks for passing on the comments from Vince. Physics and aerodynamics aside for the moment, I really like where the air safety compass points. It is toward ruthless pursuit of truth by intolerance of fallacy and untruthfulness because people’s lives depend on intellectual honesty and scien...
