Hi Lasse, As the line gets lighter there is less mass transfer and therefore less force to pull the loop (the force that pulls the loop is a result of the momentum change at the loop front ie the line that is transferring from fly to rod leg slows and this energy goes to Tension, which is the force...

Yes but our normal concern is not the rod tip, nor the forearm, but simply the rod itself. We don't include the forearm as a lever when discussing casting with a rod, so I think it's reasonable not to include it when discussing casting without one. Cheers, Paul Funny, most of our teaching runs arou...

Bring on the Frank Machine! :cool: It is quite possible to cast with translation only. Obviously it's difficult because our arms can work as levers. But the hand can translate, and if the hand is translating only and it is the hand that is pulling the line, then it's a translation only cast IMO. Th...

But a taper down slows things down, less mass, less momentum change, less Tension. Taper up, more mass, greater momentum change, more Tension. Cheers, Paul Hi Paul What was the thinking behind the "windcutter", and how are most triangle tapered lines marketed? I'm not saying this is true, but I rem...

Hi Mike

Actually, Anna Hedman's record cast was 36,7 with the 5 weight ;)

The distances indicates good conditions, great casting and cool to see the crossover happening!

Cheers

shooting heads, again!

I've got a heavy triangle taper that I'm using to make a S/H for distance. To get the length down to something manageable (I think it must have been a salmon line) I've chopped off all of the rear taper as well as trimming the tip. My question; is there any merit in trying this head reversed i.e. t...

The MED has a "bump" at the front, but I don't know the exact weight specification or length. It's certainly noticeable for Speys. Bruce said it was there to delay turnover at distance. I'm not sure how that works, because I would have thought that would have delivered the opposite? Cheers, Paul If...

Hi Lasse, Just to be clear that the hauling is an essential element for bare hands casting... I am sure you know that, small haul is still a haul... if someone can show me bare hands casting without hauling, I will love to learn that. and hauling is not just the function of increase line speed. Mos...
