Re: Recent FP from Paul

The lightest I’ve used is a 3 WT, but mostly a 4WT. I guess that we need to make another experiment! Starting with 2m of flyline outside the rod tip, how many false casts to hit targets at 50’, 75’ and 100’ with 4, 6, 8 and 10WT lines. Can we drop the line on the water between casts? Ie multiple PU...

Re: Recent FP from Paul

Surely I have never caught those fish, but I am used to fishing with people who use line 2/3, I see on the river that to get there they continue to make casts that would be useless for me using line 4/5 obviously it is another environment and not I insist without certainty😁

Re: Recent FP from Paul

What I’ll do Ivan at some point is video Snakehead practise shots with 8 and 10WT lines. Many years back I did measure up PUALD short pickups to long shots at 25m on the lake. But 25m is no use because even without a false cast the fish has gone by the time the fly arrives. 20m would be a long shot...

Re: Recent FP from Paul

I believe that a 7/8 line does not need 10 throws to reach 20 meters to get a good measurement you have to understand how many throws are needed to reach a certain distance because the time will be discriminating.🤔

Re: Recent FP from Paul

As I imagine you know, nymph fishing does not count with the size of the line, on the contrary the thinner the line the more effective the nymph is, here the sinking and the type of sinking come into play, they say that the light line is faster , I think the difference between a light line and a hea...

Re: How to adjust the wrist?

Hi Ivan, I find I can’t reach fully back without turning the hand outwards. At least not comfortably. Interestingly I was looking at this a few weeks ago :) Cheers, Paul Hi paul, I noticed that starting with the palm of the hand down (v-handle), turning inside is not a problem, especially when turn...

How to adjust the wrist?

It already exists, I don't know, but I would still like to give this indication, I have always seen, in the back cast, open the wrist by turning to the right (if the rod is gripped with the right) or block it, perhaps it is a habit, I too I often do, but what is the fastest way to turn the wrist? As...

Re: Simplified Casting Physics Document

Perhaps it is easier to have a document that indicates what are the errors in reading our eyes and sensations.

I've tried casting a rod without a reel, and it doesn't let it damp very well, so your experiment is interesting :cool: maybe casting Chinese style damps the rod differently with the mass more out to the side?

All the best

Thanks for trying.

Re: Change leverage

It’s an incredible way of reducing casting arc. I think for teaching a beginner the basics of casting arc and narrow loops there is potentially great value in this setup. The only draw back I can see, is that if you drop the rod by mistake you either smash the butt or it sinks to the bottom of the ...
