Re: Rear taper on shooting head

Thanks Lasse.
Some long casts. I did not expect that with 30ft heads.
You have to shoot a whole lot of running line. Impressive.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Rear taper on shooting head

Thanks for the input Lasse. I have two questions: * How far are you casting those 30ft heads in the Danish championships? * How comes a free flying head turns over? I thought the loop is a consequence of the tension of the bottom leg. I know this topic is handled somewhere, but I can’t remember. Che...

Re: Rear taper on shooting head

@all thanks for the input I am having better results with a Barrio GT125 #8 cut back to 18.5m then everything else. Last weekend someone had a GT125 #7 which was over 20m and the results suprised me. It felt more like casting the MED than a clunky shooting head. For the first time, with little wind,...

Rear taper on shooting head

For the Sea Trout Distance event I have been cutting up a fair bit of lines in the last year.
Some lines still have a bit of rear taper and that got me thinking.
Does a rear taper on a shooting head have any advantage/disadvantage?
Would like to hear your thoughts.

Cheers, Bart

Accuracy casting, again

When accuracy casting, I have a real problem judging the distance of my fly.
I try to hit 60cm targets. The ones at 15m only get in with luck.
I do hover. Any tips, or is this a matter of practising?

Cheers, Bart

Re: Progressive rod?

Good question Carlos. Looking forward to the replies. I used to think that it is a rod that bends gradually to the butt as you increase de load on the tip. However. With this definition I can bend every rod progressivly, depending on the arc I am bending it in. So, I don’t know the answer. Cheers, B...
