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...

Re: The point of tapers in fly lines and leaders

Hi Lee I hear what you say but my comment was made after watching the vid frame by frame. In particular I watched from 0.13 to 0.14 several times. At about the middle of 0.14 turnover has nearly reached the leaders and I can't see either main line failing much, at least as seen against the second tr...

Re: The point of tapers in fly lines and leaders

Had to use the 18ft Competition Rod https://youtu.be/fnqXU5y8Wcs Great work Lee. A picture is worth a thousand words and quite a few piles of hypotheses. Folks. If we look at the starting pic of the vid before play is clicked what are we seeing? We aren't seeing the effects of mass distributed diff...

Again, an absolutely awesome video Lee. These casts clearly show the effect of taper design on a line.
+1. Thanks Lee. Very useful.
And btw particularly liked the roll cast one too. Interesting comparison with the overhead.

Cheers
Mark
