Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Torsten wrote: My subjective impression was, that a short haul seems to improve the cast for me, but indeed the time window is very small.
Hi Torsten,

it works for me, that is why I do a haul. ;)

Cheers,

Old English Casting and American Casting

Always interesting Paul, to see such old films.
You can probably casting "English" in different ways. :p

Ian was in Germany once, I saw him throwing here.
Nice gentle loops.

Cheers,
Thomas

Leader design for MCI Exam

Not 1:1, but the leader must be lighter than the line by only a small amount. It must also have a similar stiffness. These two things together will help the loop transfer smoothly into the leader. A similar stiffness is not important. Tapered, furled leaders made from e.g. Dyneema are very limp and...

Off Shoulder horizontal curve

Hi Peter, I only cant the rod 45 ° to the left for that. https://vimeo.com/82492137 R.M. makes a circle over the head, to get to the other side, from 6:43min. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfxEBtffkbw Or I cast the "Svirgolato" to the right, but it's a completely different technique. Cheers, Thomas

Arc to narrow

Thanks Paul.

I can put the leader (3m) to the side, or also a little bit of line to it. . . and that goes up to max. 15m to me.
90° is easy to create.

Backhand I can do that up to 10- 12m until now.

Cheers,
Thomas

My roll cast is rubbish

Hi Neil,

looks also to me, as if you throw up easily, power application too early !?

The direction is normal from the back high, slightly downwards forwards.

MED roll cast

Actually I was wondering how to get it to 18+ with a static rollcast. With only line hanging from the rod tip in a very small D it seems very difficult. Hi, the MED is bad for that. The right line- taper is important. The old Hardy Mach Trout works perfectly, with shooting ! https://vimeo.com/11045...

Arc to narrow

To the left, I do it backhand. Cheers, Thomas E. I can't get it working back hand. I don't know why that's so, but it's on my list of casts to nut out. Hello, not so easy. :) But you did manage, if you cast on the right side and reduce the line tension. Then the leader remains on the left side, as ...
