Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

Yes but I’m pretty sure that later in the exam when it comes to tailing loops you will see Creep described as a fault. Creep is not the only fault term we have in fly casting. Crashed Anchors would be another. If Creep isn’t a fault for the IFF then they have to be completely consistent with this th...

Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

Sort of. I’ve fitted a spot/flood lamp to the Rocket and the Battleship. But you can’t navigate around the lake with it on - you won’t know where you are! It’s just for parking, travelling between stumps. I navigate by the outline of the hills and islands etc. Sometimes the stars. With the light on ...

Re: Teaching drift?

I was more thinking about forward drift as the backcast is unrolling! I use it in distance casting to reposition the rod to a better starting point for the beginning of the forward cast. It’s also called “Slide” - a form of drift... I will try to cover this more later next month. Particularly Drift/...

Re: Gloss vs. Matte finish on rods.

I think it’s nuts to have shiny rods! I’d post more but my internet is cutting out. I’ll write a FP on it next week :)

Re: Newb

They were actually done as a sequence. Ideally they should be watched in chronological order. (And practise at the same time! :) )

Re: [Fuck] Lock down days!

Around Millipede Island is remote enough. Not quite that far because I need the odd Internet connection. But away from the main routes around the lake. I’m pretty chilled out now. Came down in the dark, which was quite an adventure. I reckon I’m good for 3-4 weeks. Hopefully they lift lockdown mid A...

Re: Casting technique during the Covid-19 pandemic

Yeah I think I might have to grow my hair and become a jungle man. That will make a change from being bald. I think we do virtual lessons. If by paid virtual lessons then nah. If by more structured Board virtual lessons then maybe. I do kind of like the unstructured mess behind the Board. I realise ...
