Re: Arm Path

Hi all I seem to have missed some, being busy with family time. Those images were posted via Imageshack as I recall, before you could upload them directly to the board. John, I did the traces on my BIM (sort of CAD) software. I still do from time to time when I want to figure out subtleties of other...

Re: Hypothetical question on mechanics

This afternoon, I watched Francois Botha casting a popper on a 7-weight for Leerfish while standing on his paddleboard. Not a hint of exertion. :cool:

Cheers,

Re: Current distance stroke

I found stepping with the casting side's foot most useful when I was working on hitting a 100ft target left-handed. While working on the 90 foot left-handed carry challenge, though, I realised that I still tried too hard, even as I knew to stay easy and controlled. I stumbled on Dr Dave Alfred's vie...

And when I do it right, I can tell just from how it sounds(only line noise not the rod).
I like that, TC!

I wonder if John saw it.

Footwork - On the forward cast, the main rod rotation only starts just after the right foot plants. Trunk/pillar - Less leaning backwards along the casting plane on the back-cast (there is ...

Re: Tracking ... tracking ... tracking

Oh dear, a typo - it's Alred without an "f".

Dr Dave Alred says in a match situation (and in my view as with fishing) you are often presented with that one crucial chance, and you must train yourself to perform in that moment. That training is best done not by endless repetition.

All the best,
Dirk

Re: Tracking ... tracking ... tracking

It’s a great skill to throw 120’ but can you do it in 2 minutes from cold? Hi Paul I was very interested to learn of Dr Dave Alfred's approach to training/practice (he is particular about the distinction but I can't now remember which is which).

Propagation of a “transverse wave” in a flyline is determined by gravity.
