Re: SA Mastery Standard AFFTA line

And let me add that it's a *really* good line. They came out last year and I'm so pleased that SA has released it. Yet, I'm frustrated by the fact that a tru-to-weight line has to be named "Standard". And that they market it as the "caster's fishing line" is a total disaster and a self-created probl...

Re: Shooting Heads for Huchen

I don’t think so because I had bought the two together. That’s why it was a good example. I’ve had similar experiences but then there were other possible causes. If you look at Sakari’s link you can see it’s quite possible. Unfortunately the full PDF seems unavailable. Obviously there are different...

Re: Shooting Heads for Huchen

Paul - back to leader-shootinghead-shootingline-train. Yes, he's fine as long as the shooting head's core is stronger than the leader's.

Re: Pairing lines to rods

It’s not like a pair of jeans that say 32” but are really 38” so that you don’t think you’re a fat barstool. It’s about leaders and fly sizes; important fishing stuff. If my 4WT line weighs a 7WT then I can’t fish tiny flies without getting broke off. “Oh that’s ok; I’ll just fish a dog nobbler ins...

Re: Drone photography and video

There are many of those commercially available and most are so cheap that it's hard ly inventing some yourself. I'm quite pleased with this one.

Re: Drone photography and video

Well, I'm a certified drone pilot - necessary in Denmark to fly in some areas. Basically the certificate gives you the right to ask for dispensation to fly in areas where it's otherwise not allowed. There are a good number of rules to know - for instance you're not allowed to fly closer than 200m to...

Re: Shooting Heads for Huchen

That of course depends of on the leader he's using. Huchen can grow big, so I suppose runs into the shooting line are frequent/at least to be foreseen? In that case, the shooting line *must* be stronger than the leader, which is of course old knowledge to most. Because the core strength of the shoot...

Re: Wing burners

No, I haven't found these (yet), I'm still hoping.
I have a old brass set as well, the Tiemco ones (which are excellent, btw) and a set of Renzetti's. It's just that he shape of the wings these make are spot-on perfect.
