Re: FFI CI exam Tailing loops

How do you identify and fix Creep, Bart? :) I have to confess that my limited experience becomes evident here. In the last 10 years my focus was on distance casting and not instruction. Although I have been helping people because they asked, I have not presented myself as an instructor. The people ...

Re: Dangle and cure

No worries Johhny, I think we all have it.
Someone will fill me in, but I think if you have the least of sack in your line, you have it.
As Lasse has mentioned before, dropping the rod tip before the next cast will promote it.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Former lurker, picked up the rod again

Hey Limpe!
Welcome back. Didn't you take the pictures for the casting article we wrote in the VNV magazine?
We now have Fly Casting Sport NL. Hope to see you on one of our meetings. All focused on casting.

Cheers

Re: FFI CI exam Tailing loops

Thanks for the feedback Boisker. Funny how people click on different things.
Luckily I have more than one analogy in my toolbox :) and use the flicking the paint as well. Sometimes I am not able to cure the tailing loop at all in the time that I have.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Snowbee prestige XS line (treatment)

@Graeme. Have you been using this products over a longer time period? Many people warn that this products contain stuff that damage the coating, but I have no experience with it. @Nick I have one rod with single leg recoils and it casts like shit if the line is a bit dirty or if I am using softer li...

Re: FFI CI exam Tailing loops

Fix 1 I will already give an answer for fix 1, so you can give your opinions. What I recently have been seeing often is that people want to be slow and start the casting stroke to slowly. Halfway they start to apply power (slightly to abrupt) and the loop tails. Sometimes the abrupt power applicati...

Re: FFI CI exam Tailing loops

So Bart, I would keep out simple and do something like this: 1. Improper application of force 2. Creep 3. To narrow of a casting arc So first explain what a tailing loop is and what causes it. ie transverse wave in the fly leg put there when the rod tip dips and rises in the rod plane during the Ca...

Re: FFI CI exam Tailing loops

@jarmo. I like your definition. :D I already bought the new CI guide. :blush: Just scanned it, but it seems like they do mention that a lot comes down to insufficient space to proper accelerate. One thing just came up. Doesn’t it make more sense to say “insufficient arc for the length of line”, inst...

Re: FFI CI exam Tailing loops

@jarmo. I have not read the latest version off the study guide. Will make sure I do. I have a 2007 version here. I just have a small problem with the way most people explain the cause of the tailing loop. Let's take this video from Paul: https://www.sexyloops.com/flycast/tailing-loops/ Sorry Paul. I...
