A progressive rod is a rod that wants equality, healthcare for all, etc. And it brews a mean cuppa 😉

Cheers

I had to retire my progressive rod - it point blank refused to harm any fish and then refused to be bullied into casting more than 72ft.

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

Jeez Bart! You've been to two BFCC meetings and broken the #5 record twice - how much more do you want to beat us by? :p :D :D :D Have you thought about laying off distance and practicing accuracy :???: :D :pirate:

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

I remember that post, especially the bit where Carl says - "At the BFCC, I applied this stuff and won everything. It got boring. show up, win everything. go home. So I started to give it to my competitors so there as at least a challenge." On reading this I thought I'd look back through the results ...

Re: Reducing bounce from backcast shoot

Oops - I missed the double handed bit there - I thought by 'backcast shoot' you were slipping line into a single handed cast - sorry!

Re: Reducing bounce from backcast shoot

Hi, If you're getting a lot of 'tip bounce' with a heavy line I'd be looking to drift so that the rod was more pointing down the line (what position to you drift to now?). I'd also look to take some power out and perhaps slip more line in order to 'soften' things off. Obviously if after you've stopp...

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...
