Re: Making floating hoops

They are, made some 😉
Just need some material that really keeps being lit, for the fly, the mylartubing I have used, wasn't good enough...

Re: Rod tracking and accuracy

Nope, still looking for one :p

Re: The most accurate fly rod

Hang a rod horizontally, add weight to the tip, rotate the butt. The tip doesn't spring out to the side Lasse, But what about the stripper guide where the twisting effects of spine are more pronounced? In one of my tests with the rod in a spine finder and and adding some torque to rotate the rod ne...

Re: Movement Skills Overview

Actually that’s an analogy that a student once gave me. For me it’s more of a drive up than a dunk down. But it’s certainly an analogy that has come up. I’ve caught carp over soccer pitches before. :laugh: Cheers, Paul Its the free throw, works good with basketball players. Or the three pointer, wh...

You should make a 14 and a 16 instead and see if it gets you 4 meters more :p

Re: The most accurate fly rod

Many years ago I had a conversation with David Norwich who reasoned that the rod would tend to bend through the plane of bending, no matter where the rings are placed. I can see some logic in this, since it takes little effort to twist the tip around. I’ve heard so many different options. :D Cheers...

Re: The most accurate fly rod

Hi Rickard Nothing :) Spine isn't all its cracked up to be, just turn any rod, and it's clear. The spine is a residue from manufacturing, where the layers of carbon cloth overlap. As soon as rings are put on the blank, it's almost impossible to find the spine. Casting wise, it has no effect, but do...
