Bach beats Beatles, Pink Floyd, Tool, whatever any time simply because his music has been alive for way over four hundreds years.
So true. Bach is the best. He clearly was one of the most impressive human beings ever. A genius if there ever was one.

Re: Practice "fly" size and shape

Hi,

There are a lot of dryflys that easiliy will spin a leader if it has a long and thin tippet. I stay away from such patterns like the plague.

Re: Grips?

Hi Carol, Gary and Jason Borger both use the three-point grip. Its a great grip. I use it for most of my fishing and have done so for over 10 years. However, its not a grip that feels natural when you first try it. It feels awkward. You really have to learn it. But since i learned the grip I haven´t...

Lots of running in the woods for me. And intermittent fasting. I feel like a greyhound! :)

Re: Leader designs

Hello John,

The polyleaders I have got are much softer in the buttsection than any monoleader I have seen. They are also considerably heavier.

Re: Leader designs

Hi everybody, I have taken a big step backwards with leaders this year. When I first started flyfishing I bought polyleaders. I used these when I fished for searun browntrout in the Swedish archipelogo on the westcoast outside of Gothenburg. I then started to buy regular monoleaders and have for the...

Re: Being fit

Hi Paul, I have been experimenting with different versions of periodic fasting for around 7-8 years now. I have tried the 5/2 diet but the version that suits me best is called 18/6. It means that for each day and night (24 hours) you have a 6 hour long stretch where you are allowed to eat. During th...

Re: One place to fish...

My problem would to go somewhere I haven’t been, or fish somewhere I know and love? Exactly. I have fished a certain nearby river since I was a boy. And today me and my flyfishing-club take care of it in various ways. I have fished that river so many times, I have had so many nice experiences there...

Re: \|/ or \\\|/ Push Vs Pull, rotating through the stroke or at the end of the stroke

Hi Paul,

OK. 3 is as an example of what I would call rotation throughout the stroke with "increased rate of rotation" (most of the rotation comes in late in the stroke). Semantics then.

Cheers, Thomas
