British Team

Hi Stefan, Can you tell us what the Norwegians are up to? I sure hope that it is still possible to be competitive for the man going at it alone. It will be hard to get some coaching and stuff here in Holland. @Paul. Does you invitation still stand to come over and practice with you guys if there is ...

Fishing Kent

Thanks for the tips guys.
I am able to travel so will check Sussex.

@Bernd. Glomma was great, but we had very bad conditions after day 1. We caught our share of fish and Hein is an awesome guide. In the Rena we only caught one fish in 3 days so better luck there next time.

@Paul. Thanks I will try it when I get back. In Kent at the moment. @Dirk. Many thanks for the analysis. I can already tell you I will drop this style straight away. I felt the muscles of my upper chest up to my triceps for 2 days. Like I had been lifting weights. This is going to lead to injuries f...

Fishing Kent

Does anyone have tips for fishing in Kent?
I will be there from tomorrow (19th September) for a week.

I found this http://www.chilhammillestate.co.uk/?page_id=340. Fishing in the river Stout. Is it worth checking out?

Cheers, Bart

I completely get what you are saying Ben.
The speed thing makes sense and I tried it, but I keep falling back in old habits :)
But this is just the beginning. If my blister is gone I will nail this thing :)

Thanks for the input. @Ben. I agree. The tip is also wobbling a lot in the FC. There still seems to be a fundamental difference in the style you guys are using and I can not lay my finger on what it exactly is. I have been watching some videos of Paul and my casting just seems a lot less fast. Maybe...

Hi Dirk,

Thanks. It would be awesome if you want to make a graphic analysis!

I am no physics expert, but that high hand position can't be to optimal stance to apply power. I should change that.

Hi Ben.

I tried. I also noticed it's a bit high, but it feels uncomfortable holding it lower.
Maybe I should try it for a longer period.
