Re: Freezing air liquid water fishing

Hi Alex,
I recommend to use a thin fly line (lowest possible line weight), huge rings and maybe you want to make sure to have some silicon fat available as well. Otherwise you may fight the ice in the rings not the fish. ;)
Regards
Bernd

Re: Thoughts on catch and release - best practice

- fighting the fish hard and short Hi Johnny, I have heard a fair number of fly fishermen saying so. At the same time they still using exactly that method of angling usually making for quite long fights and enjoying this. Then we have all the extra soft rods not really helping to shortening the fig...

Re: Rod tip path

I've read that the tip position at the beginning of the stroke needs to be inline to where the the tip is during the deepest load in the rod during the stroke. Seems basic but agreeable to everyone? This gives you a straight path and avoids tailing loops, gives you a good visualization on opening t...

Re: Thrust?

Morsie, I interpret it as "thrust" is a term obviously being used in pretty different ways and yet supporting confusion among instructors. Thus I better avoid using it in my teaching. ;) For sure it does not define momentum to me. Not even to some degree. Momentum is clearly defined as mass times ve...

Re: The Whip Effect

The inertial effect comes along with spring behavior. When accelerating the butt forward, rod bends under line inertia (its mass) and rod MOI. And as soon as the rod butt is decelerated, the spring energy comes back into the line just as the inertial effect adds forward speed to the line. It is not...

Re: Haul lock and twisting rings

Hi James, from time to time I get a student coming with a rod-line combination, that for me locks up the haul on mainly the forward cast. It usually is a slow sinking line combined with snakes. Specific coating, that works on water and when having lots of line dressing, but without any of both, trou...

Re: Thrust?

From Al. "The term 'thrust' is applied energy during a movement, to some degree, defines momentum that directs the oncoming line path or position. 'Thrust' during a move allows a line to move toward a intended placement or path. 'Thrust' is the casters intentional effort to create/aim momentum. Why...

Re: The Whip Effect

Thanks Merlin, thanks Gordy for your fine answers. In regard of understanding the level of "whip" better, would it be help to produce a graphite rod coming in constant weight distribution (no taper)? We could then bend both the tapered rod and the none tapered one and see how tip speed would increas...

Re: Using Video while teaching

In Spain now I used video within a group of 15 students. No problem. It works so fast! Sometimes I film one, while talking to another student. Its mainly about how often you do, I think. Seeing one's one casting of course is great. I also have used the shadow of mine to check myself in sunny weather...

Re: Haul lock and twisting rings

Hi All, Just out of interest, which way do people orient their rod rings when they are casting with a 4 piece rod? Advantages and disadvantages? All the best Nick Hi Nick, in the worlds we see two groups, those having the rings and the reel in the same plane during casting. I am one of these. We tu...
