Re: Leader designs

Hi all! So maybe those outdoor dead air conditions are the same as indoors! Stefan if you take the ventilator out of the equation, do you ever find that some days indoors are better than others? I'm guessing that temperature plays a big impact. Yes, to me it feels quite the same and results are roug...

Re: Leader designs

Hi all! I got some experience in casting indoors, actually about 11 years come to think about it. My god time passes! Indoors might seem like perfectly stable and even conditions but that´s not the case. Halls have different climate and it can change rather fast and affect the casting quite a bit. H...

Re: Too much power!

Hi Nick! The main thing is how you add the power in my opinon. A good caster does not get an open loop just by adding power, when a good caster hits it hard the product is just a very fast and very sharp loop. To open up the loop you need to add something that "sprays" your fly line all around. I kn...

Re: Pull the line first.

Hi all!

Flyfishing and flycasting are two aspects of the same thing. Anyone who ranks them needs more of the second.

Re: Pull the line first.

Hi all! We got the data on how a few of the best casters here used to to do the haul a few years ago. Ulrik shot it with high speed 3d cameras combined with motion sensors in the best lab in Sweden. . Fuck. You can not imagine how much data such an event renders. Terabytes. The data is not fully pro...

Re: Swedish Worlds 2020

Hi all! There has been some changes. Here is the latest info I could get: The event will cover all the events for Flycasting (not all the events for castingsport aswell as was originally intended). Events: Salmon Distance, Seatrout Distance, Trout Distance, Trout Accuracy, Spey 15, Spey 16/18. The f...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Hi all!

Sounds very strange. But more weight, more bend in the rod using a rotation only cast might give a flatter tip-path? It would be like the scandi trad, compensate lack of understanding with "adapted gear"?

Re: "Just touching the line" in slip shoot PULD

Hi all! Just back from a session in the hall. Worked on this for an hour perhaps and its just amazing when you get it right. Got it to maybe 30% hitrate but the half-hits are getting better and that makes me happy. Again surprised by the less-is-more-effect. Focused on Pauls theory about extending t...

Re: Mel Kriegers 'long roll cast'

Hi all!

My cents here is early rotation on the backcast. I know how that might sound but look at compeditive speycasting. They basically do away with all the difficult stuff in the beginning of the cycle. Then they lift and push.

Best regards
Stefan
