Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Yesterday I watched a number of videos of Jerry Siem casting. Not because I want to copy his style, but because I would like to understand its characteristics. Style seems to be an emerging topic in fly casting, right? With the upcoming US event and the discussions here. I started wondering: could w...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Lasse,

were (backcast) loops equally tight in those casts?

I appreciate videos, but I am a sucker for seeing them loops.

(I think I liked style #2 best.)

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

It's odd isn't it, incidentally i can carry quite a length of line just using my wrist, and keeping my elbow tucked into my body, albeit side casting, and not having a vertical rod. I quite like the feeling of this, do you think instructors don't teach this because you are basically relying on timi...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

What are some of the main reasons for increasing our stroke length with a pushing style? Why can a short stroke length result in loop problems for longer lines? This post really hit a nerve, because this is basically what I have been experimenting with for the last couple of months. (BTW, quite a f...

Brilliant - I love it. I’ll play with it this week.
If you find enough love for this, how about a video? We are intrigued.

It makes sense for sure. The tip is going to come back along the trajectory of the previous cast.

Re: Teaching Styles.

I think it's quite individual, I haven't got a problem looking at my back loop with closed stance, over my casting shoulder My head turns that much, so it seems I am not a completely lost case yet. But I would not be able to properly see a longer backcast straighten in that head position, assuming ...

Re: Teaching Styles.

Closed stance accuracy sort of resolves all of these, but at the same time makes it practically impossible to watch the backcast. Why impossible? Hello Lasse. I just ran a quick test, closed stance, right foot in front. With my neck it is actually more feasible to watch the backcast by rotating my ...

Re: Teaching Styles.

With a lot of backcast problems or a complete beginner I’ll use triangle method, minimum power and then Closed Accuracy. I also start with a variation of the triangle method, but have then proceeded to open stance, tilted rod and keeping an eye on the backcast. However, I have begun to suspect that...

Re: Teaching Styles.

Great topic!

Paul: When you teach a beginner - or, better yet, a group of beginners - how do you choose which style to teach first?

Re: basic question regarding tracking

I have been thinking about this style issue a lot lately, and have also experimented whenever I have had the opportunity (too seldom recently). Here is my meager 2 cents (at most). Got the plane game going, it's getting difficult when i reach the almost vertical plane since i have the tendency to lo...
