Re: Which taper - What line?

Interesting subject. I think a lot of it comes down to personal taste. Personally I am a huge fan of the long head SA lines. (Expert Distance, Amplitude trout). The long rear taper promotes loop stability when aerializing a long line. The compound belly should promote a positive turnover at long ran...

Yes, very clear!

Re: Closed stance (accuracy) - big back loop

Thanks for the explanation Paul.
This gives me something to work with.
I don't think i fully understand the last bit.
How do you go from max Radial Deviation to max Extension? I don't think I ever end up in a maximum extension position. Which way is the rod then pointing?

Re: Closed stance (accuracy) - big back loop

Well, this was actually an advice from a very well known instructor, competition caster and rod designer. His name is Paul. You know him? :p I showed Paul a video of someone who had a tendency to tail. He was casting without using his shoulder, started very slow and had a very subtle abrupt power ap...

How would you fix this?

Re: Essential Level Challenge Competition

Oh, and like the idea you suggest on today's front page.
Make it a competition. That would perfectly suit our competition setup and makes the above question redundant.

Re: Essential Level Challenge Competition

Paul. I am thinking about doing the essential level at one of our Fly Casting Sport NL meetings. However, I am still not sure how it is meant to be done. Are we just examining each other while drinking a beer? And then afterwards we shake hands to the ones that were able to do it? Is there some kind...

Re: What lines weights do you typically teach with?

For me, the go to rod would also be a #6.
I can think of many situations when to choose another class, but mostly a #6 will do.
