Re: Accuracy

They don't Morsie, but you also only get one shot at each target, and the clock is running 😉 and tails cost you precision, and so does out of shape loops, but you already knew that...
At least we are allowed to haul in comp, which we aren't in the test..

Re: Movies of Grant Casting.

You are right Lasse, 65ft with a 21 footer is what was mentioned in the book, I thought I'd read that he'd beaten it some years later. Have you cast a 21 foot rod like these, I'm guessing they were greenheart. Only have had the pleasure of throwing a 21 foot carbon copy thing made by Sage for a bri...

Re: Movies of Grant Casting.

I have seen those pics Lars, they came through on the copies I received. Unfortunately they don't tell you much. In the bit I read, as I recall, he executed a measured 67 yard Switch cast with a 14 foot rod.............that's 61 meters in Eurospeak or over 200 feet........ And yet his record cast w...

And I don't even think anyone is capable of speycasting a 4/0 iron to 47 yards today :-).


Lars
I think there would be plenty capable of speycasting a 4/0 iron to 43 meters using a 21 foot rod and suitable line today ☺️

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

Here's a more upbeat thought. Just 80 miles off the coast of where the "China virus" came from lies Taiwan.There is a lot of travel between the two countries. When I looked yesterday (John Hopkins Uni) Taiwan had 329 confirmed cases and 5 deaths from the virus. Taiwan was all tooled up and ready to...

Re: Q: single handed spey casting - curve on the end the fly line

Hi Davy

Sounds like a rebound curve, are you casting with the rod angled out to the side? If yes, try to deliver with a more vertical rod orientation.

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

Yes but I’m pretty sure that later in the exam when it comes to tailing loops you will see Creep described as a fault. Creep is not the only fault term we have in fly casting. Crashed Anchors would be another. If Creep isn’t a fault for the IFF then they have to be completely consistent with this t...

Re: Leaders for students

I make them with cheap nylon, 0,5 0,4 and 0,3 mm and go by the 40/30/30 or 60/20/20 formular. And then a piece of fluff at the end. 9-10 feet normally.
