Re: Which taper - What line?

If I was to take these tests again I would without question use the RIO single hand Spey. Which one would I choose? A 6# and I might also be tempted to knock a foot or two off the tip to get the length into the mid 30’s. Headlength on the singlehand spey is targeted at 33 feet, I wouldn't knock any...

Re: Which taper - What line?

Lasse... as you say there isn’t a requirement to follow the standard in tests... do you think you should be able to use 1 or 2 lines? As I'm one of a few that where ready to weigh a candidates line in the field, I would just like it to follow a standard 😂 Honestly I don't see much difference, and i...

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

I'd start with eliminating slack in the previous cast, it looks like what slowly (sometimes very fast) happens in the spiral of death, where one starts a little bit to soon, and the tiny amount of slack carries over into the next cast and next and gets worse and.... And I'd go with Paul's crappy dra...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

A simple question would be what is the rate of acceleration sufficient to cause a loop? That was originally my idea of how to separate [Forward] Drift (or Creep, if it’s unintentional) from Casting Stroke. It’s unfortunate that the IFF ultimately ran with it and didn’t wait a few more months for us...

Re: basic question regarding tracking

There's an app for tracking made by Ulrik Røjezons son like ten years ago, I think its still there, called "flycasting tracker" Its basicly two lines and a dot, you hold your smartphone in hand, and make your cast, if the dot hits the lines, phone will vibrate, lines can be screen wide or narrower f...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

It is rotation in the direction of the NEXT cast while the loop is unrolling, so you can't really call it drift. The difference is that it is intentional. So it would seem that none of the definitions fit really well. Let's come up with a new one! :sick: Drift is repositioning of the rod, direction...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

The Paul Arden [broken] Etch Sketch Gallery of Fly Casting. In our Zoom meeting last night of CCI candidates, JW went through the Bruce Richards' powerpoint of casting mechanics, with the caveat early on that the FFI definitions were labored over for years. Finally, the leader said, essentially, "T...

Yes but art cannot be defined by \\\\\\/. It is about feeling and texture. The essence of knowing who we are. Expression through music and dance. Backslash backslash forward slash doesn’t and never will have the nuances that connect to our soul. But yes basically that’s it.
