Re: Belgian and Spey casts twisting the line

Never had a problem with it. Always wondered what the fuss was about. I do use the cast a lot.

Re: Which taper - What line?

As Mel said, "Every answer to every question about fly fishing begins with 'it depends". I use an orange DT lines for most of my demonstrations and for teaching and encourage CI and MCI candidates to do the same for a time. Love the RIO shs line and use it for most of my trout fishing long fine fron...

Re: Improve the pick up

Take a look at how far your backcast is falling out of the sky before you come forward. You can come forward much sooner than you think.

Re: Improve the pick up

Bob I think you're pausing too long on your BC and losing tension. With that little amount of line the pause can be very brief.

Re: Curve Casts

Superb clip Malik. Would love to see what is actually going on with your hands to generate the result rather than the result.

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

I came across this cast when I was practising underpowered curves in the vertical. Its all about being able to control the plane of the legs. Don't even start with trying to throw the fly leg under. Throw its straight over the top, then out to one side with a vertical rod, out the other side with a ...

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

For avoiding that kick the Belgian cast is one of the solutions Malik and probably the best one in my view, although the back cast is to the side and the forward cast more vertical. Shooting line into the presentation cast helps too, especially with the Belgian. The other is the cast where the fly l...

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

Malik the best solution is the Belgian oval constant tension cast. Happy to learn any others though, but I'm yet to see one. Fly line taper and sufficient line mass is also in my view at the heart of making it easier. I do use the 170 a lot but not for heavy flies. Its superb when you get stuck in t...

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

My view - to the side - fly leg outside the rod tip. Why this doesn't work for most is that they finish the forward cast with a curved hand path rather than a forward thrust straight at the target. Looked at from behind the hand comes forward from a position outside the shoulder and finishes in fron...
