Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

I must say it puzzles me why we have to have a standard in the first place. Just tell us what the head weighs in grams, and how long it is, and then rod manufacturers can tell us what range of line weights they think work for their rods. Another thing that puzzles me is why rod manufacturers think i...

Re: Reducing bounce from backcast shoot

I’ve just read James’s FP from today. Could’ve saved my fingers and just directed you to that! 😁

Yep, same dangling end (or BDB as James christens them).

Quite pleased that Tracy and James came to similar conclusions as me. Phew! 🙂

Re: Reducing bounce from backcast shoot

Mmmm... Is this 100ft from feet to fly? If so then a pick up with 55ft of fly line out of the tip, with a 15ft leader and (say) a 15ft rod, takes you to 85ft, requiring a shoot of just 15ft.

Re: Squeezing fish for the pic

Yep, more info definitely needed.

I remember talking to Mike Ladle about Mackerel years ago. He was asked to catch some fish for the local sea aquarium (rod & line).

Re: Squeezing fish for the pic

Not sure what the slide showing the tagging is showing. That looks like a pretty nasty wound. Is it a post-mortem shot?
