Re: Barbes vs barbless

Unfortunately, the trend here in Denmark - at least the part of the country where I live - is fishing with barbed hooks. The exception to this is the salmon rivers where barbs are banned by law. What made me start the thread, was a discussion on the topic in the comment section on one of the Sexyloo...

Re: Dangle and cure

On my longer carries I notice a "ticking" of the fly on the surface and what has helped unless coincidentally, is as already mentioned, simultaneously lifting the hand while opening the wrist as paul teaches drift. Rotary drift has appeared to be more beneficial in my casting developments than simp...

Re: Barbes vs barbless

Sounds right. I believe it's the same principle that applies when pinching the barb and getting a lower wire diameter so to speak. Also, Jens Bursell conducted some studies on this topic: http://bursell.dk/artikler/saltwater/hook-test.pdf

Oh, my fishing primarily consists of stillwater (saltwater) fishing for sea run browns if that's an important information

Barbes vs barbless

I've been thinking of going barbless for a while. The main reason is that 99% of my fishing is c&r. Besides, being better for the fish and its survival (which is a very valid point) are there any benefits to the angler and here I'm not thinking of the time is set the fly in my jacket, ear or similar...

Re: Dangle and cure

Sorry guys and girls, the video quality is too poor to anything useful. It's getting a lot worse after posting it to youtube. Don't know what's happening and what encoding they apply :/

Re: Dangle and cure

Thanks Lasse ;)

Paul, I wouldn't mind uploading the video but the quality is rather poor. Anyway it will take some time. The footage is on home laptop and I'm in Copenhagen right now and will not be back on the mainland (the other side of the country) where I live before next week...

Re: Dangle and cure

Exactly Lasse - it hits the water surface in front of me.

I'll try to isolate the fault(s) using your suggestions. Thank you.

Re: Dangle and cure

Typically when the fly skips on the water it happens 1-2 meters in front of me at the delivery cast. I has to be mentioned that when it happens, I'm typically wading in waist deep water. However, the loop still unrolls. Don't know if that clarifies anything? :)
