Re: Analysing loop propagation

I think everyone agrees it’s a wave Cheers, Paul I don't :D You can call it what you want, it's just a name. However there seems to be a push to label it as a 'wave' in order to give it some sort of greater validity in a physics sense. You could call it a 'wibble' or 'Lord Tarquin Digby-Smythe' if ...

Bernd's FP - line trap

Hi Bernd,

Thought you might be interested in this photo - taken from the time when I was suffering from line trap quite often.

Cheers, James.

Re: Shooted cast

Very interesting. When we see the loop unroll on the 170 the loop point is close to the top. I had assumed that this was related to peak haul speed I think the position of the point of the loop is due to the fact you've aligned the bulk of the fly-line (in the fly-leg) and given it momentum along a...

Nice work!
It reminds me when I first got into distance casting I received a lot of help from here and personal coaching from James. Oh and he's good at coaching student to beat himself :D :D :D
:D :D :D I've learnt my lesson now, as soon as Nick gets to mid 120's that's it :pirate:

Re: Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

Hi Paul,

I think you're missing the point with the MED test - fix the carry at 85ft with a flag of tape on the line, this eliminates guessing the carry. Than see how each outfit feels. Do you think it will be as easy with a #3 rod as with a #10 etc.

Cheers, James

Re: Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

Hi Lasse, have you tried the same carry with something like a #3? I do remember your test, and Tracy and I repeated it. She'd never previously cast a #5 MED on a rod marked #10, but that's the one that went furthest for her (she did bomb out with the #12 rod though). My distances went with the rod n...

Re: Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

I have a thought experiment, or better still a real exercise, to consider. If you take a MED #5 and put a flag on the 85ft carry point then what are the experiences of aerialising to the flag on different stiffness rods? Would the carry on a rod marked #3 be as easy as on a rod marked #7 or #10? If ...

Re: Covered topics /how it works

So when I said the overiding reason for loop morph was fly-leg momentum, your objection was what exactly?

Re: Covered topics /how it works

So ultimately the driver for the string pulling straight is the fact that the nut possesses momentum which it loses?

So now, what lifts Anna Hedman's line into the air from where it was sat on the ground?
