Re: Rice Bubble cast, Snap, Crack, and Pop

Embed the red? Or the cast? ;)

Great to hear Morsie.

Re: Thrust?

He could have been talking about what was called "torque thrust" here for some time before it was recently called "torque twist".

It's the thrust of the rod at the end of this cast:

Re: The Whip Effect

If the rod is straightening after input from the caster has stopped, there is still a force being applied to the line. That must be negating the COAM concept in the same way that that a brake on a wheel kills COAM.

Re: Haul lock and twisting rings

I rarely use anything except SiC guides.

James, it's not a myth. It used to happen to me. It was the weirdest feeling when I went to make a forward cast and the line was locked in place.

Re: Rice Bubble cast, Snap, Crack, and Pop

Now I'm squaring my shoulders to the target as my first move into the forward cast. When I can remember to do this it works nicely but the moment I think I should focus on some other detail I lose it again. I'm certainly out of my depth here, but this part of your answer had me considering a closed...

Re: Using Video while teaching

Buy a drone that allows you to set a distance and orientation to film you/your client from and make it occupy that location (relative to caster) while you film. Tracking is easy to observe from directly above.

I haven't done it, but it should be possible.

Re: Climate Change

With (apparently) unlimited resources, the doubling of a population at regular intervals is called an exponential growth rate. It happens in many types of animals/plants/bacteria/fungus etc. For humans over the last 200 years, that interval is about 40 years. That is, if you look at the population a...

Re: Torque Twist

While out practicing my spey cast, I tried experimenting with "torque twist." Has anyone tried turning the wrist in a counter clockwise thrust...what were the results on the fly line loop? Lou I gave it a go yesterday. It's not as "natural" for me but it does have the effect (for me) of making a ve...
