Hopefully on cut grass...that was a real PIA, I migrated on to the tarmac to teach eventually which roughed up the line a bit.
The mind boggles.....

CI test question

My right arm from little finger to shoulder is mince and, consequently, for me, the right size grip is important if I want to carry on fishing comfortably without having to visit a hospital. Jarmo doesn't use a thumb up squishers grip but likes the sensation of squeezing to a stop, an idea promoted...

CI test question

Although it can be caused by repetitive wrist extension the most likely source of the problem for casters is grip. This is because we tend to overgrip if we are consciously trying to stabilise the wrist during a casting stroke. Basically we squeeze harder and the wrist carries on doing whatever it ...

Loading/unloading rod scam

Nice FP by the way Bernd. I agree it’s mostly about feel. But it’s also about response too. By that I mean does the feedback from the rod reflect what’s happening to the line. The other main characteristic of a rod is how does it recover, ie does it damp well or do have to do something to make this...

Loading/unloading rod scam

Casting feeling is focussing on sensory feedback primarily from the hands. It simply means shifting our aweness to the connection with the rod and line and how it feels. A good example would be running. You can focus on style, outcome, what you had for breakfast, what you plan to do for the rest of...
