Casting 12WT Rods - Gary's page!

.....but I use a different grip to try to lock the wrist. I normally cast V grip, palm forward for lighter tackle but as soon as I throw the 12 I go thumb-on-top and use the shoulder to block the movement Rajeff-style. Back to the original topic, the reason I block with the wrist is because my wris...

How far do you think?

I couthg myself carring to much line, and at the same time loosing tension on the forward delivery. Why i know that- because I saw myself casting and on the delivery shot my rod tip is fucking wabbling Michal, that's the first time I have heard about the rod wobbling during the delivery and would l...

HI SMS, Your video looks like you had a blast. Thanks for posting that even though it makes me jealous. I actually made a short video for a friend who is re-making an old "Saltwater Fly Casting" video he filmed 20 or more years ago. He is pretty adamant about teaching and espousing only the thumb on...

I meant to add that a lightweight like me needs a long stroke on both back and forward casts to build momentum prior to the start of rotation. The thumb on top does not allow for that on the backcast without ruining the tracking.

Casting 12WT Rods - Gary's page!

I'd be interested to hear what others do? I'm not nearly strong enough to use a thumb on top grip, so I use a palm forward. I also choke up on the handle and hook my index finger around and under the blank just above the handle. That increases the leverage in my favor by about 4 inches. But more im...

Paul, I assume MCL and Max Rod Flex are just different names for the same thing. If not, what's the difference? Thanks.

Cheers,

Castable Shark Leader?

I am curious why so many use swivels. I've only used swivels (snap swivels at that) when trolling for the convenience of switching out lures/baits. I've never used them fly fishing for blacktips or anything else.

Fly rod deflection

Walter, I was plagued with that most of my life until Paul told me what to do about 8 or ten years ago. I would get it from 6 through 10 weights. The line stops DEAD and you have to check your rod to make sure the guides are still on it and you didn't crack it somewhere. I can't remember about 12 wt...
