Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

Paul
Thanks for the clarification, especially this bit; "
If I was organising these things I would have the Oval Cast as the category. The Belgian Cast being one of its members. Elliptical Cast being another. Arguably the Single Spey is another member."

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

Paul Can you explain the difference, if there is one, between the Belgium cast and Oval cast. My understanding with the Belgium cast is the forward cast begins with a near vertical rod plane. Whereas, with the oval cast the rod tip path is about 45 degrees from vertical....no movement to vertical. H...

It does have the effect (for me) of making a vertical loop when it would have otherwise been canted in a similar plane to the rod's orientation.

Re: Torque Twist

While out practicing my spey cast, I tried experimenting with "torque twist."
Has anyone tried turning the wrist in a counter clockwise thrust...what were the results on the fly line loop?

Re: Tippet breaking-tropical hot saltwater.

I've had nylon tippet weaken to the point were it failed when knot testing. After trying other older spools, I discovered they would fail. So, I tried newer spools, they failed. I had to scrape all of my nylon! The reason exposure to heat and sun...be careful how you store nylon especially if your f...

Yea, went to watching SL videos, as well as hitting the books. Where do we actually "circle up" does it matter?

Single hand spey-circle up

I was out doing some practicing, had my single hand fly rod, my focus being spey casting. Practicing the C-spey and Snap-T mostly. I wanted to see what it took to place my fly to far upstream and downstream. Got side tracked with my timing on when to "circle up." I discovered when you "circle up" co...

Re: Mono tying thread on saltwater flies

Lars
Agree, mono isn't the most user friendly material.
I find it easy to create bulk, if your not careful.
Claim is it enhances base material colors.
I'll be checking the products you mention. Most of my fly tying focuses on salt water patterns.
Thanks for the info.

Mono tying thread on saltwater flies

Greetings
Reading Pop Fleyes: Bob Popovics's Approach to Saltwater Fly Design.
He uses Larva Lace fly tying mono, suppose to come in different colors.
Anyone know of this product? And is there a substitute?

Fly cast "Planes"

The three popular Planes are: Rod Plane Casting Plane Line Plane So, I did some quick research wanting to find a consensus on there definitions. So, I'd like to know the be...
