Re: Distance cast with line weight

The thicker a line is, the less surface it has for the same mass. So the higher weighted lines have less surface based friction for the given mass compared to ligther lines and thus go further. Regards Bernd Bernd, Can you further explain this? This discounts line friction on the guides I take it. ...

Functional roll casts

I use the static roll cast,as well as the dynamic roll cast, but mostly the static roll cast in my presentation. Mostly a mending technique, bucket mend, when fishing nymphs and wet flies.

Nymphing Strategies

I add a section of tippet, about 8in to my main tippet using a blood knot. At the tag end of that tippet I tie a basic overhand knot. I attach my split shot, knot prevents the split shot from sliding off. Hi Lou, that's how I used to fish for mullets at times. Then I realized the relatively long si...

Tendency to tail

FFF...Federation of Fly Fishers
The organization is international, therefore they changed their name to FFI, Fly Fishers International

I still find myself using the older organization name.

I like "long" leaders when nymphing , I deviate from the prescribed 2.5 times the water depth.

I like the RIO indicator nymphing line.

I use several nymphing technics, I do have a favorite. That being, split shot at the end of my tippet, nymph tied above. Not a fan of Czech nymphing.

So, like to hear from others on this, and if you have a preference.
