Loops

Some fantastic footage was made oer the weekend at the Nordic Championships in Tampara Finland. It is well worth a watch, and I guess there's some questions for the technical forum about loop propagation, fly leg pulling rod leg etc. afterwards :) http://youtu.be/1kUEk5StVgU http://youtu.be/D-8KWBeo...

CCS testing: Doubts about my methods

Hi Graeme ERN numbers should be taken with a big pinch of salt :) The scale is liniear, and the lines aren't. And it's really just for personal use not a general thing unless we're comparing rods without casting them. Personally, for general 5 wt line work I prefer a rod with ERN 7,5-9,0 and a nice ...

CCS testing: Doubts about my methods

But I would expect quite a difference over several rods with the same markings...

Seatrout distance fly rod

Hi Mike Never seen a loop crash because of too thin runningline, seeing lines fly witout being attached and turn over sort of goes against that too, there's a thread about it in the technical forum ;) Set a good loop and it will go, throw some faults in there and thicker runningline might help a bit...

most important teaching skills

Hi Pete You make some interesting comparisons, a top golfer or soccer player doesn't have to teach, but quite alot ends up teaching when they aren't on the top of their game which is for soccer players pretty short, golfers go a little longer. Flyfishers tend to do flyfishing till they float away ;)...
