Re: Double Haul increasing rod flex?

Another nice thing about hauls is that they help share the Work load between hands, thus reducing the effort needed by the rod hand to produce a cast to a given distance, thus enhancing net Force in the intended direction of the cast by reducing (the risk of) over rotation which applies force in com...

Re: \|/ or \\\|/ Push Vs Pull, rotating through the stroke or at the end of the stroke

Don't give up yet Alex, there's more confusion to come. :D No, seriously, the idea of late rotation refers to how the rod behaves. Mostly, you want the rod to translate before it rotates so rod rotation happens "late" in the stroke. If one switches attention to what the body should be doing in order...

Re: Practice "fly" size and shape

What's the usual size and shape for non-exotic practice fly? Hi Alex Can't say what the usual size is generally. In my case it's about 25mm. Standard practice combo is 5wt. The "fly" is doubled piece of orange builders string with piece of pink builders string clamped between the double and all hel...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Mark, Lot of things to do since the Covid arrived in Switzerland and really no time to check what happens on SL :( Whatever, I finally got some time to join the river with a good friend and a camera. You should be interested by one of the result of our “work“ : https://vimeo.com/410802402 Some f...

Re: Statements that make you go Hmmm? #1

To answer Lasse (because I'm feeling adventurous ... ;) ), yes, the rod tip does stop moving backwards at some point, allowing the line to overtake the tip in that direction. Sure, it keeps moving in another direction, but it has stopped in one direction. Waiting for barrage now .... :D At least tw...

Re: Q: single handed spey casting - curve on the end the fly line

If you're getting plenty of slurp just check that you are in fact circling UP. Putting these issues together was big moment for me. Similar experience for me with single hand spey. Insight wan't available when casting on grass. No slurp. My self analysis was that a bit more emphasis on lifting up a...

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

Interesting and quite scary, DK has a population of 5,8 million, a case number of 3672 and 139 deaths, but with the cavat that the deaths aren't nessecarely from covid19, just that the person had covid19 when they died... I'm afraid to run the numbers because the DTR looks huge , like the best of n...

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

A friend is a retired physician. He said that if anything is an impeachable offense, this is it. It is criminal because people are dying. Trump was so concerned about his legacy regarding the economy that he first downplayed the seriousness of the virus to keep the economy going: "It's like the flu...

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

I'm finding the description of power application to be ineffible. Mel alluded to that when he said "let me try [describing it] one more way ... start strong ... start heavy." I think it's one of those things that you can only experience. Your muscles have to the feel the rod and line while making t...
