That’s really helpful Mailik.... :)
it’s quite a subtle movement at the stop
My pleasure Boisker.

Yes, subtle and at the stop, not after it. It's a cast, not a mend.

Best Regards

Re: Curve Casts

Hi, I don't have a lot of time right now, but searching in my Hudl collection, I found some videos that might help. I'll shoot new ones, more didactic, in a few months. Here, a video of Jean-Pierre, a colleague and friend instructor, practicing a "standard" twist cast. Front view. http://www.hudl.co...

Re: Curve Casts

Yes that’s an excellent point Malik. The rod position is incorrect in the diagram. 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 high...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Paul
On your drawing 72 you stop the rod in this position | (bird eyes point of view). Try to make your stop with the rod in this / position (bird eyes point of view).
Best regards

Re: Curve Casts

I have the hardest time envisioning the horizontal tailing loop for a svirg curve! Is the fly leg above or below the rod leg? Or, is it in the same plane and doesn't actually cross? Hi Magrove Cuckoo ! Above of course :D . It's a "crossing loop" which does not intersect the rod leg. (you can also c...

Re: Curve Casts

When I show people how to perform the Svirgolato, my first step is to make sure they can cast a vertical loop with a horizontal rod. The second step is to get them throwing a cast that would normally produce a horizontal tailing loop with a horizontal rod. Excellent way to teach it, Graeme. I somet...

Re: Curve Casts

Paul special's :
Try to make a crisp and short haul (20 cm) just before to stop the rod, just at the end of your stroke. It does not help to control the cast, but you will generate the twist of the tip.

Re: Curve Casts

In the above I think Creep doesn’t make the Svirgolato but instead the curve only hooks left. For me to make this cast I break 180 plus apply abrupt force too soon. (But I seem to need all the help I can get with this one :D ) Cheers, Paul Hi Paul, I agree. Breaking the 180 probably helps but is no...

Re: shaping the fly leg

I could be wrong, it seems to me the result of two things together, early departure and short leader. Hi Richard, As Craig and Ivan wrote it, we are guessing, but b and c could effectively be the combined result of a timing issue (not waiting enough for the unrolling of the loop before starting the...
