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...

Re: Single hand spey-circle up

Paul
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"

During my previous fly casting session I got to thinking about the different "planes" we use while casting and in our teaching. 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...

Fly Rod Guides

Reading about fishing guides, the article mostly pertained to spinning gear, anyway heres the link. http://anglersresource.net/TheoryoftheNewGuideConcept(NGC).aspx One of the paragraphs discusses ring size, and performance. Here's the paragraph, Do smaller guides perform better then larger guides? T...

Re: Rod deflection and acceleration

" Incidentally I just selected two model rods with the same casting conditions, and guess what, the glass rod beats the graphite one in terms of launch speed (and counterflex of course). The main reason lies in the inertial effect of the glass rod which is pretty heavy by comparison to the graphite ...

Re: Rod deflection and acceleration

Merlin

Is it because fly rods bend we say they function as a spring...no bend-no spring?

Re: Rod deflection and acceleration

Merlin Appreciate your input, I'd be lying if I said I understood the original quote. Matter of fact, its confusing. Im not sure if there is a relationship between rod deflection and acceleration (rate in change of speed)...I can either have slow, fast, or constant acceleration...to put in simple te...
