Re: Thank you for accepting my application

Hi Phil, Welcome to Sexyloops. I don't think you should see age as a barrier to casting well (bearing in mind I don't know the toll that years of golf has taken on your body :D ) . I'm a member of a casting club in the UK and we have a number of 70+ year old members who are capable of casting over 1...

Re: Handling Sailfish

The reason I ask is because I've seen a number of videos where the line is straightened by the boats motion rather than the act of fly casting.

Re: Handling Sailfish

Hi Paul,

Congrats on the sailfish. Would you say that you performed a fly-cast to present the fly to that fish?

Cheers, James

Re: Analysing loop propagation

Hi Michael, In sub-atomic physics there is a property called 'spin'. It's a name given to a value used to represent the angular momentum of a particle. Now the thing is that these particles don't actually spin. In fact, they are not actually billiard-ball type entities with a physical axis about whi...

Hello Sash, welcome to Sexyloops. I'm up the road from you in north Wales. I'm interested to hear about your milkfish from the shore - that must have been a fight an a half?

All the best, James.

Re: Analysing loop propagation

1 If you produce sound, u produce the wrong type of wave,( or at least unnessecary ones) if u can hear things u are wasting energy out of your cast. The Soundwaves leave the cast in form of energy that doesn't contribute to it. 2 beginners often produce a lot of sound and it's well known that that ...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

I think everyone agrees it’s a wave Cheers, Paul I don't :D You can call it what you want, it's just a name. However there seems to be a push to label it as a 'wave' in order to give it some sort of greater validity in a physics sense. You could call it a 'wibble' or 'Lord Tarquin Digby-Smythe' if ...

Bernd's FP - line trap

Hi Bernd,

Thought you might be interested in this photo - taken from the time when I was suffering from line trap quite often.

Cheers, James.

Re: Shooted cast

Very interesting. When we see the loop unroll on the 170 the loop point is close to the top. I had assumed that this was related to peak haul speed I think the position of the point of the loop is due to the fact you've aligned the bulk of the fly-line (in the fly-leg) and given it momentum along a...
