Wind outdoors vs indoor flycasting

Hi Sasse

It depends in the indoor venue :)
Big enough, and the right conditions, well into the 40's

170 style

All those guesses about length with different methods is pretty useless when its outdoor. Just my two cents :) It would be very interesting to se the same casters indoors and measure the lengths. Hi Sasse I'd recommend you do a bit of research into a competition they used to have in the States, cal...

Hi Bernd

Then it was on Sunday where we had a breeze, neither of us passed 120 on Saturday, and Bart hit 37 something on Sunday, barstool :p

Incidentally, how much arc do people think is the minimum required to deliver a 120ft cast, for example with a MED and TCR#5 combo? 123° delievery arc (124° & 128° on Steve Rajeff using a stiffer rod in Norway) Bart was casting with Steve before and pretty much tried to copy his relatively small ar...

It's damn hard to hit the ground with the rod... Hi Lasse, just take a softer rod and your tip will counterflex further down. Using my 8wt. Z-Axis on the 5wt. MED it is not that easy to hit the ground. Using my 6wt. Streamdance I hit the earth many times when starting to learn the "170". I remember...

The majority of knots in my leaders are made in my backcast. I know because I have a strong habbit of looking at my backcast. And I can tell when I have to undo a windknot Hi Lasse, what is the cause for tying these knots in your back casts? Root cause is a tail. I'd put my money that highest perce...

I'll explain it another way: in the wave of a tailing loop the line changes direction two times: lowers and raises. The climb of the line reflects a rise of the rod tip. You can not make a tailing loop moving the tip rod only one way, how you can not make a loop accelerating the rod only in one dir...
