Re: Spey to Overhead ratings

Sure but I don’t think making a dynamic roll cast ever feels the same as making a long overhead cast and neither feels the same as making an overhead shooting head cast. Cheers, Paul A good spey delivery, a good overhead longbelly delivery and a good shootinghead delivery all feels very similar to ...

The rod bends less with lighter line.

Re: Analysing loop propagation

I teach casting to students and I aim to take my own casting as far as I can. I've used my understanding of this to improve all sort of things I do and teach. For example, these things are easier to do or explain when the loop is treated as a wave: Morphing loops Excessive overhang Landing an aeria...

Re: The left hand pulling the line.

If you don't wait to almost loop straight, you waste alot of stroke length, and unless you're Frank, you will have a problem with a long carry, which is what we are talking about here, dancing on thin ice, not jumping on concrete....

Re: The left hand pulling the line.

It doesn’t mean slack, it means slide :) Try not moving your hauling hand from the straight position in front of you from your backcast, then wait to start haul until your rodhand gets there and starts rotating. You will get slack. Slide would be moving the hands together while the line unrolls beh...

Re: The left hand pulling the line.

You will be feeding line, instead of starting to move it, an that means slack 😉

Re: Cleaning lines

I let them soak in clean soft water. Then wipe the dirt of with a soft cloth. Then apply dressing if nessecary.

I like Pauls approach, a bit like putting wax on a dirty car 😉

Re: Line Friction and Line Tension

Guides and blanks is a nice website to buy rod components from, but they only have a selection of whats out there, and no raised single legs, thankfully 🤣 Haven't found a good pic yet, but just imagine a normal single leg snake, then extend the wire from the eye to the foot by half a cm..... the nat...
