Re: How to adjust the wrist?

That’s a really great question, Matt. Yes usually, but not always. I’ll often cast with the “palm forwards” but I also sometimes fish “thumb on top” and if I move to a longer backcast then that’s when I’ll have to twist – and yep it’s not going to be perfectly straight. I certainly wouldn’t go that...

Re: How to adjust the wrist?

Great how you pick up random little bits of info on SL... Paul do you start the hand movement with the hand already turned outwards in the scenario above? I noticed when trying to get a fast wrist rotation right back that it led to the rod tip arcing slightly and if I am not careful it takes the tra...

Re: David Attenborough: a life on our planet

It seems like a depressing situation to resolve... even if the political will was there the choices are pretty bleak.. People talk about reduction in birth rates, but apart from the political nightmare of enacting it, the reality is that many countries need more young people, if only to support the ...

Re: On enjoyment, fishing and bad casting.

A mix of both to be honest... if I am casting badly I don’t enjoy the day, but that relates more to accuracy... not putting the fly in the right position first time to a rising fish annoys the hell out of me, if I have had a day where I just don’t think I’ve been on it I’ll go home dissatisfied. But...

Re: PUALD Challenge

I didn’t really mean it to sound negative James... more realistic... I like the PUALD comp as a challenge.... if I can get over 100’ I’ll be happy :D I went back out again earlier after Lasse’s posts and marking up the point of the running line so it was easy to spot.... funny this morning I was cas...

Re: PUALD Challenge

I was, but out of interest rather than direct comparison to the competition... I already knew I would be way out of my capability on PUALD distance for the comp without even picking up the rod... but still interesting to know the difference between the lines. I thought I had a 6 and 5 w med, but can...

Re: PUALD Challenge

Thanks Lasse...
I’d just finished marking up where the head finished so it was easy to spot through the rod rings... I had in mind I would aim for 100’ as I know that extra 10’ will be slow to find.... so I’ll keep in mind that’s still 10-15’ shy :D

Re: PUALD Challenge

From the taper diagram I reckon the total head is heavier than the MED... although it’s ages since I cast the 6w med so I haven’t anything to reference against... I’ll know how much easier it is when I find it and cast it :D I was more pleased with the control in loop shape on my backcast than the a...
