Re: Task 2 CCI and Definitions question

The only reason not to use IFF definitions with students is because they don’t fkn work :laugh: Mate, In my experience it's hardly ever the definition itself but the single instructor making proper use of whatever def in his lesson. Having said this I never will limit my teaching due to ONLY keepin...

why is a Loop called a Loop and where do you measure its tig

Hi everyone.
If the term "loop" is in use for a century, then I am sure, it would take at least 5 centuries to replace that term. So I'll have no chance to see that happening anyway. :)
Cheers

Functional roll casts

With regards the popper I don’t try to pick the popper out the water with the roll cast, instead I roll the line into the air leaving the popper on the water and then pick it off with a backcast. I find that a much better solution. That's how I do it. Not only with poppers. Usually my leader has to...

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

Hi Paul, I tried to make some slomos yesterday testing hook bendings comparing different pulling forces and speeds. 250 fps wasnt enough. Not that easy to get it on tape. Now am after salmon for a week. Will try to back up further when I am back. What I can tell so far: Slowly pulling the leader to ...

Distance Beginner Student

Hi everyone,
Let's assume you are having a total beginner for a daily lesson. How far would you expect him/her to cast at the end of the lesson?
Is there a typical limit for most students and if so, what are the causes?
Thanks for sharing your experience!
Regards
Bernd

Functional roll casts

Hello! :) I use a lot of roll casts in my fishing. Mostly it's dynamic roll casts. But yes, I also use the static roll cast regulary. If my fly gets snacked on the bottom, I roll against it and add some line curve behind the fly. Then I add a very sharp sudden short pull. That way by creating a back...

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

Hi Johnny, I don't think you can easily test, at what point hooks bend and leaders break. Hi Bernd, I might misunderstand you, but if you limit the variables and use the same premises when testings how much force is needed to straighten different hooks, then you should be able to get some comparable...

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

Hi Paul, I don't think you can easily test, at what point hooks bend and leaders break. An Atlantic salmon can bite a treble hook in a way leaving one or two bends nearly straight. Then with incredible strong head shakes these fish can bend hooks or break leaders, which I couldn't when increasing fo...

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

a single handed rod applies more force to the fish than a DHD (like for like). It would be interesting to see if others find the same. On both rods I added between 250 and 600 gramm depending on the angle (between 90and 45°). The level of force input I kept like I would in a real fight. Hi Paul, I ...
