Teaching method

I understand there are 3 main methods by which people generally learn, with most having preferences and strengths between them... Detailed ‘technical’ descriptions, demonstrations where the individual prefers to watch how it is done and kinaesthetic... how do you work out which is a persons preferen...

Re: Pull-back

Hey Paul... i can’t say i teach it :D so I’m very happy to be shot down. The language used for casting is really interesting and some descriptions caused me issues when learning (such as ‘the stop’ being likened to hitting a nail with a hammer) but a descriptive term that captures it and works for m...

Re: What are you thinking when you false cast?

Fly first is a great way whatever the species... having spent some of the winter practicing your core skills Paul, the pick up and lay down, fly first got under my skin :D I’d never really thought of fishing that way before, I’d always put slack in the system through other methods. But fly first, an...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

As someone who has got into casting far more recently than everyone (or at least most on here) I can understand the heavy line aspect.... I do t think for one moment people are generally giving a moments thought to “quicker loading” or “quicker shots”. The main difference is they can feel it loading...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

I just picked up a Cortland type 3 sink tip, grain weight supposedly 160 (it’s a 6w line)... only cast it on the grass this evening. It feels heavy compared to me usual floating line, but it has an aggressive taper, so I guess it would :D I purchased it for some streamer fishing on smallish rivers,...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

But people like them :D A good reference for me is about 2 or 3 years ago I met up with Vince at a casting instruction day, somewhere in Hampshire... a regular weekend event for people training up for their instructors. The guy who arranges it (apologies if you’re on SL... I can’t remember your name...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

This will be a tricky question as people are fishing in such different circumstances and for widely differing species, but it would be interesting as to which lines people prefer... So for average trout / grayling size what lines do people use? What are people using for other species / requirements?...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

I don’t really consider it any more.... I mostly fish 4w’s for trout and grayling .... and have settled on either SA mastery trout or SA DT in a 4w... I keep getting tempted to try the amplitude smooth trout line, but it’s f’ing pricey... but at least I know where I am with all 3 of these, 120 grain...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

It’s a tricky one, i’m not sure the genie can be put back in the bottle now. What would really help is if gram / grain weights were provided more easily... SA are one of the best and you can find it for each line on their website, that’s not the case for other line manufacturers, but is should be on...
