How to cast a tailing loop ‘on command’

Funny, in your video, when you present the nice false casting and then tail either its
- creep
-breaking 180°
- narrow arc
To throw the tail you hit harder on delivery then your false cast, slightly, but harder.
Does it mean that all causes of tail comes down to inapropiet aplication of power in the forward stroke?

Yep it’s not a perfect demonstration! However I would agree that all tails - in fact all faults - resolve down to improper application of force. We just separate them for teaching purposes.

Flycasting is about applying force to line. You either applied the force properly of you didn’t.

Just out of interest, I would like for people to try using a tailing loop to collapse line into a 2m diameter ring. Which cause of tails gives you the most consistent results?

It was a conversation Bill, Rick and I had down at Rick’s place many years ago. It was Rick’s thing and you can’t beat it :)

How to cast a tailing loop ‘on command’

I thought - incorrectly - that in the CI exam I should be able to reproduce all classic cases on command: power spike, creep, narrow arc due to early stop. So I learned them all.

The easiest way for me to learn was to first cast so that I could easily see the result myself every time. To do this, I cast horizontally on grass and experimented with all three forms. When I got the feel, I switched to vertical casting.

So much easier once i’d watched the vid...
Partic like the casting out of plane for a curve.... I already did that to curve cast to the right (i’m Right handed) but had never associated with it being a tailing loop :D
Very cool... I like that :yeahhh:

Also easier to do with creep and shortened casting stroke after watching the vid....

I’ll have another play later...

Hi Jarmo,

I think nowadays at CI you have to be able to demonstrate two causes that you might commonly see when teaching.

Cheers, Paul

Edit; no you need to be able to demonstrate three causes
The candidate will perform a demonstration of a tailing loop and its correction from one of three common actions by a caster that induces tailing loops. The examiner will select the one to be demonstrated.

So very true, that is in the teaching section! In the performance section the candidate can choose. My recollections of taking the test are a bit hazy, I did not remember that. Now I am even more glad I learned them all. :D
