Re: Mel Kriegers 'long roll cast'

The orange MED comp head is not what it says on the box but is in fact the same as the non-comp line, which used to be called the XXD. Can’t remember what they call it now. Head is 68-72’ depending on line weight. It’s perfect for Spey casting on a 9’ rod. The front taper isn’t perfect for Speys bu...

Re: Outdoor practice.....

Hi Michal,
All clear. Thank you. Nice way to demonstrate it.

Re: Outdoor practice.....

Hi Michal,
Nice video. Hope you are doing well.
I would be very interested to know what you are explaining from 00:30 to 03:12. And yes, like James I'm also surprised that you haven't been devoured by a big creeping beast or bitten by a terrible snake. :D
Whatever, take care

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Malik Yes, I see what you are saying. The falling of the rod leg should increase tension as it does in a normal overhead cast. No problem with that. However, I think it is the shape of the falling rod leg which determines how radically the fly will jump around - to the left or right. What does s...

Re: Curve Casts

Superb clip Malik. Would love to see what is actually going on with your hands to generate the result rather than the result. Hello Peter, Thank you. Glad you like it ! I would say that this one is (mainly :D) the result of “finishing the haul to soon” https://www.sexyloops.com/flycast/tailing-loop...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Paul and Mark, A very good friend of mine and talented TLT Caster, Piero Scortechini, watching the video, suggests to wait a bit more on the backcast when you are casting a svirgolato with heavy flies. According to him, you will obtain more twisting effect on the front cast and a bigger hook to t...

Re: Curve Casts

Like you Gary, I thought it was a dry fly only cast, but Malik told me he can turn Clousers around with this cast. He told me this yesterday and I haven’t had a chance to play with this yet. I suppose it depends highly on the weight of the fly compared to the weight of the line. Cheers, Paul Sunny ...
