Re: Line management video/description

Hi Paul,

I do the same as Graeme, it just takes a lot of trial and error depending on how much line you have out :) I usually start out with 5 strips on the little finger, then 4 on the ring, then 3 on the middle etc for your standard distances. It's only a guide of course. :)

All the best!

Re: What do you think?

That is the reality but it should not prevent the sport giving it a shot. Absolutely, John. Interesting point about the LED wall, that would be a great idea, incorporating a couple of camera operators to track the nose of the loop would be needed i think. Finding a way to make it incredibly bright ...

Re: What do you think?

Is there anymore big events? There used to be a singlehanded distance comp too on CLA, it was cool with a grandstand and audience for the final, even if the anouncer said I was using a new technique called the doublehaul 🙈 Cheers Lasse Maybe the announcer had never seen it done as good as yours, La...

Re: What do you think?

Hi Nick, The two most important considerations of any grip are how it facilitates power transmission and the amount of wrist movement it allows. There are other considerations like injury risk and difficulty but if you consider the two primary issues, ditch the finger on top grip if you want to ach...

Re: Old felt

(and girls who have big feet)


😂😂😂😂

I seem to recall seeing almost identical felt in hobby craft. Maybe try a craft store? Cheap as anything, £0.50 :sorcerer:

All the best

Re: What do you think?

Hi Paul, Thank you! Yes, absolutely :D actually from that video it's impossible to tell but i'm casting with finger on top :) It is a bit far isn't it, it's not what i envisioned at all, the weather next week looks great so i'll take my tape to see if I've made any improvements over my PB. The back ...

What do you think?

Hi all, I really wish i had the tape down for this cast. I struggle tremendously with my back cast into the wind, it's not the most powerful. But it has gotten better thanks to James' exercises :sorcerer: I've marked the #5 Ballistic pro performance at 50,60,70 and 80 feet, so i know roughly how muc...

Re: Large SH rod videos?

Hi Gary, Awesome post! As John said, it's really the fly size :sorcerer:. I use a vertical stroke for normal trout fishing with dry flies etc, but for this stuff i would highly recommend opening up with the 170, fast haul just past the vertical, rod tip pointing horizontally backwards etc. This tech...

Re: Teaching arm/hand path

Hi Paul, One of the interesting things about this cast is CF is more aligned to the loop. I noticed that yesterday when i was having a play around with accuracy practice. :cool: I see what you mean mate, i suppose it's like changing gears, i think after 100' you have to change, more drag/stroke leng...
