Re: Too much power!

Hi Nick! The main thing is how you add the power in my opinon. A good caster does not get an open loop just by adding power, when a good caster hits it hard the product is just a very fast and very sharp loop. To open up the loop you need to add something that "sprays" your fly line all around. I kn...

Re: Pull the line first.

Hi all!

Flyfishing and flycasting are two aspects of the same thing. Anyone who ranks them needs more of the second.

Re: Pull the line first.

Hi all! We got the data on how a few of the best casters here used to to do the haul a few years ago. Ulrik shot it with high speed 3d cameras combined with motion sensors in the best lab in Sweden. . Fuck. You can not imagine how much data such an event renders. Terabytes. The data is not fully pro...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Hi all!

Sounds very strange. But more weight, more bend in the rod using a rotation only cast might give a flatter tip-path? It would be like the scandi trad, compensate lack of understanding with "adapted gear"?

Re: "Just touching the line" in slip shoot PULD

Hi all! Just back from a session in the hall. Worked on this for an hour perhaps and its just amazing when you get it right. Got it to maybe 30% hitrate but the half-hits are getting better and that makes me happy. Again surprised by the less-is-more-effect. Focused on Pauls theory about extending t...

Re: Mel Kriegers 'long roll cast'

Hi all!

My cents here is early rotation on the backcast. I know how that might sound but look at compeditive speycasting. They basically do away with all the difficult stuff in the beginning of the cycle. Then they lift and push.

Re: Dangling End vs Tailing Loop

Hi Jarmo! Great idea! I got a friend who can point on a spot on the ground beside him and then tick it with the fly! That would be a cool video. Havent seen Magnus in a while unfortunately so chances are small for that. Experiment with it! Its not hard, just new! Falsecast as slow as you can with a ...
