Paul Arden wrote:To be honest Andy I think it's a bit of nonsense. Bunging the line on the ground with a Switch Cast relies upon having a nice clear runway to do it. Whenever I'm fishing there is either water or a jungle there. Far better to learn an aerielised dynamic D with an anchor - otherwise you'll need to take a strimmer with you fishing.

Cheers, Paul
Yeah, but will you ever cast 40+ meters with a arialised dynamic D :p

I think it may be a week or two before I can report back ,because its below 10c for the next few weeks and my lousy circulation means I feel the cold and my hands are numb .
Once it warms a bit I will have a bash ,especially as there i s a bit of the concrete bowl that has recently been what looks like tarmacked !a perfect place to dump my wiggly D loop,(maybe)!

Ok now I need to see your video, Lasse! :p

I'm very familiar with the problems of fishing off dams, Andy, having spent many years of my life fishing from one. Even with the trajectory/BC problems an OH cast is always going to go further for me. :(

This conversation brings back some great memories! :cool: Standing on my net :p One of my most important moments was being taught at 14 how to fish buzzers by a bearded man who I didn't know, who had just caught his limit in a thunderstorm. Only us two were fishing and after he left I went on to catch a 6lb rainbow. I can still see the take even now.

Cheers Paul

Sorry I don't speak Italian yet. But where is it measured 40m? 40m is over 130ft :D

Go to the end, they measure the cast by measuring the line cast against the length of the rod, which is supposed to be a 10 footer :D adds up everything and its a 40+ cast according to the clip :yeahhh: :sorcerer: :p kinda like you usually does it, when the rest of us use a measuring tape :666:

And yes I was very lucky. I was given a fly rod at 10 or 11 years old. It took a while to learn imitative. But then I was even luckier working on a fishery. I was fishing Stillwater dry fly in '86 independently of the comp guys on Grafham (which Andy will know about). And later I used to fish with the guy who invented the Hopper before Horsey discovered it. He was a first class angler. But the fishing I'm doing right now is the best :cool:

Ok it *might* be 100ft. That's a hell of a cast even so. But I still don't believe it. :cool:

He's a very tidy caster by the way. What's the line weight and taper?

Cheers Paul

What, even with the funny calculater making 13*3,048 over 41 (it's 39,62) and all :D
I've done close to 30 with a 9 footer and a longbelly 5, pretty sure I can get over with a ten footer and a DT, so I'd believe 34 ish...... Length of line is never the distance achieved, but they might not claim that though, we need Mike to translate :cool: no idea what lineweight and taper, but I do know they love DT's for this cast. And yeah, nice caster!
