Re: What do you think?

Years back the Gamefair finished the event with a Single Spey comp with 15 footers. It was huge! I think the prize was a grand, but the people it attracted at the end of the comp really made for a spectacle. That’s sort of why I think we should be part of a bigger event. Get the finals in on the las...

Re: Line management video/description

Thanks Graeme. I’m not so accurate in my measurements. It’s a skill I work on but not enough. When deep wading a river however it’s a crucial one to have. I’m happy to gather loops around the index finger only and feed them off with thumb pressure. When flats fishing I dump them prior to the cast bu...

Re: What do you think?

Well it’s a no-brainier. The best we have had I think is hearing scores in Norway - they also had a Leader Board (with a delay). It would make a huge difference to the day. Of everything this should be the no1 priority. It needs a separate organising team. There are people who love this stuff. There...

Re: What do you think?

Yes I think it needs money/sponsorship. It's going to take a few years but I plan for Sexyloops to help funding in the future. The nice thing about knock-out heats is that the conditions are more or less the same for those in the heat. I know there can be some differences between lanes but these are...

Re: Large SH rod videos?

The aeroplane wings is more about getting students to straighten their hauling arm rather than rod arm but I take your point on the short head. I also agree with Lasse :O :p :whistle: with a shooting head you want to go up 1 line weight, sometimes 2, for distance. Just like sometimes with a DT dropp...

Re: Poppers in dirty rivers

Interesting. You can see the colour of the water behind Ray here. 787642BB-3B8D-4A4F-88FB-CEBD1C98647A.jpeg Or here 70D317E3-FA53-42A2-B094-9D009D3E1E04.jpeg Makes me think about the Wet Season and the jungle perch running the rivers to spawn. We didn’t hook any Mahseer in these conditions. Cheers, ...

Re: Large SH rod videos?

I think your HT 8 is the best rod out there that says 8 above the handle.
And cheers! :D

Re: Large SH rod videos?

Well that’s Hooke’s Law so it’s a difficult position to argue against. “Slowing it down” is not really accurate. Bending it more which in turn results in a slower stroke is probably more accurate. Put a 4 line on the 8 and compare that to a 12 on the 8 and there are some pretty big stroke adjustment...

Re: What do you think?

Well the Ironman is a lot longer than 2 hrs. Actually the kids at these things are great and it wouldn’t be possible without them. I always clap and thank them on my last running lap. They really get into the whole spirit of the day.
