Re: Bernd's spinning fly

Thanks a lot, mate! Bob Popvics said: "Fly tying is evolution." I couldn't agree more. Oh, and bass are indeed fish, which often are far better catchable on spinning lures/flies. Just the old typical straight fly movement will fail often! Of course I know, that a fair number of fly fishermen right n...

Re: Slow down on the backcast

That's interesting. I prefer to have the rod hand relaxing the grip close the end of rotation. Anyway, I'll keep it in mind and give it a go. "Squeezing stop" reminded me to a video, in which one of the guys of the Leland shop in the US said, that all distance casters squeeze around the stop. I neve...

Re: Distance cast with line weight

The thicker a line is, the less surface it has for the same mass. So the higher weighted lines have less surface based friction for the given mass compared to ligther lines and thus go further. Regards Bernd Bernd, Can you further explain this? This discounts line friction on the guides I take it. ...

You can fix this just with the “squeeze stop”.
What exactly is that about and how does it work, mate?

Re: Slow down on the backcast

What would you try to get a student to slow down on the back cast? Hi mate, all humans (free of age) ime have strong desire to match voice and movements. Having said this I make my student speak and cast and then he/she right from the start matches both. Try this yourself: Speak "whuuuuuUUMP" (UUMP...

Re: Task 2 CCI and Definitions question

The only reason not to use IFF definitions with students is because they don’t fkn work :laugh: Mate, In my experience it's hardly ever the definition itself but the single instructor making proper use of whatever def in his lesson. Having said this I never will limit my teaching due to ONLY keepin...

why is a Loop called a Loop and where do you measure its tig

Hi everyone.
If the term "loop" is in use for a century, then I am sure, it would take at least 5 centuries to replace that term. So I'll have no chance to see that happening anyway. :)

Functional roll casts

With regards the popper I don’t try to pick the popper out the water with the roll cast, instead I roll the line into the air leaving the popper on the water and then pick it off with a backcast. I find that a much better solution. That's how I do it. Not only with poppers. Usually my leader has to...

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

Hi Paul, I tried to make some slomos yesterday testing hook bendings comparing different pulling forces and speeds. 250 fps wasnt enough. Not that easy to get it on tape. Now am after salmon for a week. Will try to back up further when I am back. What I can tell so far: Slowly pulling the leader to ...
