Re: Looking for online MCI mentor

I do it for free for HT owners. I’m currently doing one MCI and one CCI. Usually around 4 per year. Mostly it’s all theory and going through the tasks. That is a tempting offer, I will think about it. For casting the Board is actually a great place to upload videos for help - and for asking any que...

Looking for online MCI mentor

Greetings. I am looking for someone to remotely mentor me in some MCI tasks. I would upload casting videos and email some questions. Payment would be via PayPal. This is me training early this morning. New rod, new camera, new style. The man is (pretty) old, though, but still got up at 5am just to e...

It’s pretty old Jarmo, pre OPST’s formation anyways ;)
No doubt about it. The OPST video is nice, though, and the name is pretty catchy too.

Is this what some people call the rewind cast?

Re: Dangerous casting conundrum

Nothing like a bit of problem solving when the fish are not biting (the norm). 2nd case, 270 degree change in direction, right handed caster. Face the bank, do a lob cast 180 degrees from blue line (dangle). While it straightens, turn in the direction of the red line (180 degrees) to face the river,...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

Now arguably it’s not going to be a clean as what I’m about to write - because Pull-back is also involved in the mix - but what happens is that because the mend is made early it will run right down the fly leg close to the fly end, where it meets the reflected overpowered wave and together they cre...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

Assuming that the cut-in is separate from the preceding stroke, your diagram 2 ("what it should be") matches my understanding of what it should be: corkscrew.png (Sorry for the reverse direction, proceeding from the bottom to the top.) Overpowered curve is not a problem. I would just like to learn t...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

For me that wouldn’t be corkscrew cast/mend and that’s the mend only creating the curve. In fact for the Corkscrew curve the mend actually goes the other way, but the resultant curve is the same. But I’m reserving the name “corkscrew curve” for Jason’s cast. Thomas’ video above shows it nicely. Jee...

Re: The Borger corkscrew cast/mend

A number of years ago I played around with the idea of a corkscrew cast/mend, but at that time it failed miserably. I am planning to take a new try. Doing a quick search today, I found this nice, recent demo:
