Pretty much the same as Lasse, although I usually use 5 diameters.. I use Maxima chameleon

Re: Which taper - What line?

I get that Lasse... in some ways it would be easier if the line was stipulated... it would certainly have been cheaper :D If you asked me why 2 lines... I’d have to be honest- I like my SA trout wf or DT for all overhead casting... it’s what I have used for ages practicing (I’ve only recently starte...

Re: Which taper - What line?

Lee and Lasse that’s really interesting and very much worth listening to🙂 I have the Rio sh in 6w for my 6w rod and didn’t really enjoy the feel of it overhead.... but certainly it makes the distance easier.... it flies to the backing from a 5’ overhang... currently not necessarily with enough ‘styl...

Re: Indicator Fly / Indicator with a hook

If you’re not set on it being an emerger
I’d go for something with deer hair... either a sedge or I started using a ‘found link’ deer hair body and wing/sighter...

They link is pretty unsinkable... both the body and wing are very buoyant

Re: Lock down days!

My wife was ill the week before last... flu symptoms... she’s fine now, but I am still in isolation until Wednesday... Even after that I’ll be mostly working from home... Self-isolating on the river is still perfectly acceptable over here... so tomorrow, Tues and Wed I’ll be fishing where there is n...

Re: Newb

I should stay in the Jungle Paul... moored on your boat isolated on the Lake... seems the safest bet... I’d be surprised if James, as a scientist, still held the same view.... I think a lot of people just compared it to Flu, without any real scientific basis... it’s not normal winter flu. Italy had ...

Re: Which taper - What line?

Thanks Lasse that’s really helpful.. ... as it is allowed it’s tempting to go with a line that ‘helps’... but I like to think I’m capable of passing the first level instructors without it... the Spey casts only require 30’ of line out the tip and then being able to shoot a further 10’; overhead the ...

Re: Which taper - What line?

To be honest Paul... I could practice down near the estuary mouth easy enough, although not an ideal standing position, but the rivers have pretty much been a raging chocolate mess since December... last time I tried it was 35 mph wind and in spate, which is fine for overhead but a real distraction ...

Re: Which taper - What line?

It’s definitely one line for the first level exam... I think it may still be two lines for the advanced and masters Obviously the distances aren’t demanding on the first level... so the focus is more on the technique and anchor placements... at masters level with the distances required I would imagi...
