Re: Casting to music (with lumilines)

I cast mostly to my own beat :p

When casting to music, it's often Sting. But then again, Sting is a mainstay in my music taste. Glad you like the Tool album, Paul - I thought you would. If my memory serves me right, I was the one to introduce to them with Lateralus on the Pink Micra-trip?

Re: Teaching Spey

I've only once taught a spey lesson on the river, where the dudes' wish was to be able to fish the same afternoon, but I proceeded the same way I always do when teaching spey: 1. Roll cast - focusing on the forward cast, loop size and line trajectory (if client is experienced I move on to 2 quickly)...

Re: Line Twist and the Parallel Universe

I really can't make my line hand twist more than say 30 degrees and even that feels uncomfortable to me. I don't believe that the primary reason for line twist is the line hand. If that was the case, it should be hard to create twist when casting rod hand only. I'll try that this weekend. We all rel...

Re: Confused over head length.

Stated measures are one thing as said above, but production precision is another and there are variables. Back when I worked in a tackle, I would sometimes weigh all the lines of a certain model and weight and the total weight was sometimes 10-15% off from line to line. That could be due to a longer...

Re: Reel seats: changing fashions

For functionality alone, I really do agree - Fuji's can't be beat. And although I always choose functionality over aesthetics, I really do like the look of metal reel seats, reel seets with wood inlays etc. I'm certain that's why they were abandoned.
