Re: Maintaining line tension

Hi Carol, If one part of the problem is to be able to observe your loop on the back, have you considered to practice for a while with a slightly open stance ? Just enough open to see comfortably your back loop without any risk of a torticollis or lateral uncontrolled rotation and practicing like tha...

Re: Maintaining line tension

Hi Carol, Do you have more problems to do the PUALD on the grass than on the water ? And if yes, could you tell us a bit more about it ? The main issues I have currently observed are more about doing it on the water — generally because some people makes an abrupt acceleration at the beginning of the...

Re: Shooting line while fishing

Hi everyone ! As an instructor and both saltwater and dry fly fisherman, I often notice how the importance of the shoot is underestimated in our sport. Actually, we generally only focus on the distance we can add on the backcast / forwardcast shooting some line. And that’s correct — but, as soon as ...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

Hi Matt,
Difficult to say... I think the more confortable you are with your rod, the easiest it is to obtain what you intend to. So my answer doesn't help a lot... :D
Hope you are doing well
Best Regards

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

That’s why I would like a closeup :laugh: Tge first one to me looked like a fast spiral mend. Mind you I’m trying to zoom in on my phone! Cheers, Paul :D I know, unfortunately you need a pad or even better a PC screen. The first one ("left hook with slack") is actually an half svirgolato/twist cast...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

Watching again and again the Leslie one it seems to me that he also subtly acts on his tracking just before the stop (his rod tip going slightly to the right and then to the left on MPA). I’m doing the contrary (left then right). On the circular mend my rod tip goes down/upwards and forward (I “push...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

Thanks Malik! :) It would be really useful to see a close up of your hands for these casts as well. The first one is the same/similar to Leslie’s video but at distance? Cheers, Paul Hi Paul, You mean the second one ? Difficult to say. According to me, the nice Leslie one is a mend as the manipulati...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

Hi Sexyloopers ! This excellent thread about Jason fantastic Corkskrew curve and the Paul's video convinced me to present you two interesting variations on the same general topic. The first one is a side cast with a hook curve presentation to the left, with slack line placed right at the angle. Grea...
