Re: Movies of Grant Casting.

Hi Peter, Can't comment on Grant i'm afraid but i did like the last point. The other point from the book is the way the Brits so easily develop such terrible snobbery about what others do (like shooting line into a cast for example - terrible - shocking - outrageous). I have experienced this snobber...

Re: Leader designs

As Boisker mentions, you have to take practicality into consideration 🙂 i do mention the stiffness with the Rio leader. I think Bruce R mentions that the butt section Should be around 3/4 the diameter of the fly line, but as you say stiffness is the most important factor. What I should have mentione...

Re: Leader designs

Hi Johnny, That's a great question. My leader topic came about because i was very bored, and it's always interesting to see what others teach with! :sorcerer: For trout (which i mainly do in the UK) i always use a Rio 9' tapered leader, and i use a 5 turn needle knot to attach this to the fly line. ...

Re: Teaching drift?

I also enjoy the term slide 🙃 No chance keeping my distance skills up in the garden, I can only carry about 50' although I do enjoy bombing one over the fence every now, much to the displeasure of the neighbours. Got the leader caught in the neighbours tree the other day, that was fun 😂 Also managed...

Re: Photos of your favourite gear

Hi Graeme, Very nice gear indeed! The fiber glass rod you designed sounds very interesting, i'd love to have a cast with it, i really like trying new rods :D The reel and vice look epic, is your vice a pedestal base or a table clamp model? Very interesting that you have a maniform grip, if you don't...

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

Thanks guys! I'd like to pick your brain about dealing with the slack. There seems to be a discrepancy in things I've heard over time, so before I start teaching someone to fix a cast, I'd better get clarity on it. Here are the discrepancies: Some say wait until the line has completely unrolled bef...

Re: Best fishing moments

Lovely stories everyone! My very first trout (not fish) was when I was about 8 years old. I had no idea what I was doing :laugh: but I remember exactly where I was, and at what time of year (it was the October break). I went there with my parents on holiday. Location? Wessex trout fishery situated i...
