Re: Which taper - What line?

I use an orange DT lines for most of my demonstrations and for teaching Hi Peter, I’m seeking for years for a good DT orange line number 3 or 4 for Italian style casting demo and for teaching the style. Barrio produced one some years ago, developed with Maggliocco If I’m not wrong, but give up in 2...

Re: Curve Casts

Superb clip Malik. Would love to see what is actually going on with your hands to generate the result rather than the result. Hello Peter, Thank you. Glad you like it ! I would say that this one is (mainly :D) the result of “finishing the haul to soon” https://www.sexyloops.com/flycast/tailing-loop...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Paul and Mark, A very good friend of mine and talented TLT Caster, Piero Scortechini, watching the video, suggests to wait a bit more on the backcast when you are casting a svirgolato with heavy flies. According to him, you will obtain more twisting effect on the front cast and a bigger hook to t...

Re: Curve Casts

Like you Gary, I thought it was a dry fly only cast, but Malik told me he can turn Clousers around with this cast. He told me this yesterday and I haven’t had a chance to play with this yet. I suppose it depends highly on the weight of the fly compared to the weight of the line. Cheers, Paul Sunny ...

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

Thanks Peter. Making the fly kicking upward is a very goo trick :upside: . I'll try some upside down loops with heavy flies to check what happens. I also play a lot with the shoot to control the presentation of the fly and the leader (not only with the dry). I'm also a friend of the "Belgian" cast, ...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Mark, Good points ! Slowly, we understand better and better the "mechanics" of this very efficient fishing cast. For a right handed, turning the wrist from the left to the right or from the right to the left has exactly the same effect on the main trajectory of the fly leg : it will turn left the...

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

Malik the best solution is the Belgian oval constant tension cast. Hi Peter, Thank you for your answer, but you probably misunderstood my question or I was not clear enough. I was asking for other tricks to minimize the “kick” of heavy flies on the deliver cast when we are side casting. You gave on...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Mark, Thank you for your feedback. On the video, I exaggerated the movement for didactic purposes. Actually, with a shorter and lighter rod, this "S" that Boisker correctly detected is almost invisible. As soon as the weather and my schedule will allow, I'll make another video showing a variation...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi Paul, According to my experience, you can cast the "overtip" (regular) twist/svirgolato cast with almost all the line trajectory you want on the backcast. Probably easier to learn it with a side cast and a low trajectory backcast, but with some practice, the backcast trajectory is no more a centr...

Re: Saltwater Casting Angles

Hi Peter, I totally agree with you, the general tendency, with side casts, is to get out of your tracking at the end of the stroke (Its exactly the problem that many casters have with the sottovetta/undertip cast "italian style"). Here a straight thrust in the direction of the target on the forward ...
