Re: Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

Hi All, Thank you for your thoughts :) Recovery rate difference is in the thousands of a second, short lifespan for a fish 🤣 Depends how quickly it gets eaten 😜 Great videos mate, how did you hold both rods at the same time, did you tape them? But I love really soft rods under the right circumstance...

Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

Hi All, I thought it would be nice to have this in one place as I've spoken to a lot of anglers over the years and there is still confusion around this topic :cool: I personally think all rods are 'progressive' even so called 'tip' action ones. A rod with a fast recovery to me just means you can get...

Re: The ephemeral fly reel

Hi all, I have lots of reels, some self wind which is a pain. I use Hardy perfects, they don't self wind, and the design has been tried and tested for 129 years. 🙂 The problem is the current throw away society, almost everything you buy can't be repaired, and imo that is utterly rediculous, and it n...

Re: Loop control

Hi Paul, I've only done it once with the MPR with the rod leg turning into a circle on turnover, it was so strange, and I haven't been able to recreate it since (well it wasn't intended). What was you using when you saw them, Paul? Maybe it's a little bit like a micro bucket mend? I've never seen an...

Re: Loop control

Hi Jason, That's excellent, congratulations! If you would be comfortable, i'd recommend posting a video so that we can all help you with problems. I can assure you, you won't get ridiculed on here. I've seen John (and others of course) give excellent advice to someone who posted a video, the next we...

Re: Loop control

Hi Jason, I noticed if I didn’t haul with a given length of line the loops got bigger. Then when I hauled with the same line they shrunk. That's a great observation. I apologise if this is too basic! When we bend a rod by moving it, it's got to straighten. However, the rod doesn't just straighten, i...

Re: Covered topics /how it works

Hi Paul, What's an anchor? A portion of the fly line and/or the leader on the water. Purpose of the Anchor in roll/speys; Stops the fly going into trees/bushes, sheep etc behind you by 'anchoring' the tip of the fly line on the water. It enables you to get all the momentum going in the correct direc...

Re: Physics Q/As for the casual reader

Ah, sorry Paul! :cool: I was confused by the Q/A :laugh: How is a dolphin nose loops produced? How is a U shaped loop produced? How do you create a pointed/wedge loop? How does tip bounce create wind knots? Why can't you have a leader of just tippet? What determines the correct stroke length? How do...
