Re: Swedish Worlds 2020

Hi James,

The Fly Casting WCs will be held in Sweden as per the ICSF website and others.

The Casting Sport WCs (events 1 to 9) is in doubt for 2020 due to the withdrawal of Sweden’s proposal to host them in 2020 and the difficulty of arranging an alternate host by September 2020.

Re: Using Video while teaching

Hi Greg and Malik, It is a good system, I like both the side by side and the overlay comparison option and the angle calculation for body movement. As you do Malik, I use my iPad for real time stuff and use an overhead display for classroom discussion. It is also great for the Casting by Corresponde...

Re: Best fishing moments

When my 10 year old son had a hook up with a small trout. It was memorable then and priceless now.

Re: Haul lock and twisting rings

Interesting discussion as always. I've used snake guides on my tournament rods for years and cast with them frequently and have never experienced haul lock. My understanding is that it describes the line (flyline or backing) getting jammed in the junction of the guide and the blank. I also use knots...

Re: Using Video while teaching

Hi Paul,

I use and recommend an iPad and Hudl Technique and have a library of casting faults and corrections for onsite, side by side comparison. Works very well.

Re: Swedish Worlds 2020

Can't get fairer than that, thanks Joakim, appreciated. Let's hope we can get a similar result for the Casting WCs.

Yep, correct decision, now we can focus on casting technique exposure.

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Hi Ivan and Paul, I agree, style is unique to each of us. That is why I do not consider it relevant unless someone's style negatively impacts correct technique. I see comments about similarities of casters often described as style but it is in reality a common technique they have adopted, not a styl...

Re: Fixing low backcast trajectory

Hi Jarmo, Without seeing you cast, my suggestions would be 1. Do not use thumb on top for distance, that is the best grip for short line casting as it blocks the rod. Use the palm on top grip as it is optimises the wrist mechanics needed for distance casting. 2. The rod hand traces a triangle, up at...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Hi Graeme and All, What term or terms do you use to describe the backward and forward movement of the stroke? The simplest and, to some extent the most descriptive, is to "move" the rod hand. That describes what you do. Then you can discuss how you do that and why you do that in a particular way. Th...
