Teaching Tips.

Seems like there are similarities in Drifting and Trunking? To me it seems like too long anchor is because of failed back cast more than what is possible to do manipulating rod wrong after the D- loop has began to form. Back cast needs to be directed more up! Using rising rod path and/or using an "u...

Tying your own leaders - one problem

I have boiled only stiffer butt sections so breaking should not be a problem. Nylon becomes softer when it absorbs water and boiled leaders should be kept moist to keep them pliable but they harden eventually. Vinegar makes Nylon stretchy as well so if someone needs to have a "shock absorber" for fi...

Tying your own leaders - one problem

Soft leader which is bit lighter than the line tip and then gradually lightens behaves better than stiff and light leader. Think how line loop would behave if leader does not bend at all. Thick Nylon softens to nice casting leader when boiled in water which has some vinegar.

Changes in teaching

For a caster who Creeps teaching and learning Drift is very beneficial! I becan Creeping very bad almost ten years ago when I bought heavy Skagit line and watched Skagit casting videos and soon I did Creep when I was Underhanding. IMHO the CL/CM principle in Skagit is very bad! Drifting is good cast...

Underhand spey casting

No and yes! Goran Andersson speaks of Underhand casting when he uses a single hand rod. I read somewhere he said it became Underhand casting because it was not exactly Spey casting. When DH Underhand casting the bottom hand has bigger role than the top hand especially on a back cast. The biggest dif...

Hauling and the 170

A 10g weight which you first tie to the line where you keep your line hand when you have close the max carry of a long belly line. Then when you finish the full power cast you release the weight in the end of the haul so the weigjt continues to pull the line thru rod as long as weight flies behind y...

Hauling and the 170

I can't cast now but I had planned to video the line loop behavior when there is a tied weight, lets say 10g, to the max carry of MED which is then released / thrown back and instead of line shoot there comes a loooong pull back effect. This should do something interesting to line loop and Paul you ...

Fly rod deflection

This is how I see a non hauled fly line cast using a flexible lever: If a casting session is done where using one, perhaps a #5 rod many different weight but same head length WF lines are cast and objectives are efficiency, max distance and rod bend behavior and its effect to line loop forming. Ligh...

Cts Affinity X 10 weight

I have seen the CTS 10 mentioned many times in stripersonline forum flyfishing section.

Pull-back

I think the effect to the line loop is the same the late pull back does!
