Re: Excellent FP on modeling

-> The goal is not to copy the reality 1:1. E.g. reduction: You don't want to include everything into a model! Especially not every parameter needs to have a significant influence, but this has to be quantified. Torsten, I agree. However if you're going to produce a simple model then you have to ha...

Re: Lift force acting on a fly line

Thanks for posting the video Walter. Gordy, so you want me to compare my roll cast, where the leader (red wool) starts on the ground and is pulled upwards, with the whip, which when you see the whole video (rather than your carefully selected stills), can be seen to start very high and is given a fa...

Re: Thoughts on the Hardy HBX, good rod!

I find this pulling/pushing a bit strange. A short while ago someone told me I am not pulling. I believe it’s all in the head. In my head I am mostly thinking about pulling the line with the rod tip. How do you see if someone is pulling or pushing? Cheers, Bart Hi Bart - when you figure out what yo...

Re: Lift force acting on a fly line

I probably should explain that the photos are of a single roll cast with a MPR. I perhaps should have put some parallel lines along the fence, however I think it's pretty clear that the leader ends up higher than the fly line. Now, to me, how it ends up there is blatantly obvious - and it's got noth...

Re: Thoughts on the Hardy HBX, good rod!

The reason for this is the fact i use a pull through stroke (as Mel Krieger said "like throwing a javelin") which you can't do with a tip action rod, you have to push them through the stroke Hi Nick, I think we met at Sportfish - I was with Tracy from the BFCC. Welcome to Sexyloops. With the pleasa...

Re: A Climbing Loop?

Sorry guys - I didn't get time this weekend to do the test. Being as I defaulted I'm more than happy to buy the beers next time (we'll then find some horses to ride bareback). Lasse - I wasn't anticipating you putting a reel on your fly rod, I was going to strip a load of line by my feet and then do...

I believe that 100m is possible with 1oz although 60-70 more usual. I’m not sure how it will cast on the fly rod but please use a Sage and not the HT (in case you it the tip :D )

Cheers, Paul
I have to hope that I don't cast the MED over 35 then :p

Re: A Climbing Loop?

Lasse - how far can you chuck a 20g weight single handed with your non-flyfishing outfit (I can't even bring myself to say it :D )

Re: A Climbing Loop?

Hi James, with you nano-Skagit will you be measuring against the amount of weight in the head or the total weight of the line? A MED 5 total weight is about 27g (?) or slightly less than an 1oz. Also I suppose I should ask whether or not your NS will be attached to mono? :p Cheers, Paul I was think...
