Re: Rice Bubble cast, Snap, Crack, and Pop

Hey Morsie Re: the body rotation vs cross-hands lift. On the Double Spey, have you tried a combination of the two?: Start with your feet pointing at the target (duh!) :blush: Rotate your body downstream before you start the move. Lift the rod as high as you need Use body rotation until you face the ...

Re: Rice Bubble cast, Snap, Crack, and Pop

Nice one Lee!

I've done something similar by putting a big Kahuna indicator on the end of my teaching/practising lines. Was also thinking of marking stripes on the anchor portion.

Re: Rice Bubble cast, Snap, Crack, and Pop

I find the problem of Left side vs Right side fascinating. I've read most of the advice on this (I think): Let the right side teach the left side; Do lots of other things left-handed (!) etc. But no one thing seems to work other than relentless practice, and then I find "muscle memory" on the left s...

This is Aitor's video as mentioned above. A pretty extreme example! :-)

Re: Rice Bubble cast, Snap, Crack, and Pop

Hey Morsie I'd suggest two possible issues: 1) Timing as mentioned above. 2) The other thing is something Aitor has in one of his videos, and which has been helpful to me: If the angle of the portion of the D-loop coming off the water is too steep, that can result in a slipping anchor. I think this ...

Re: Using Video while teaching

Good plan!

I don't have a fixed filming point but I do have a tripod with and iPad adaptor. I film the learner and then stand exactly where they cast from, and make the cast. Good for comparisons and overlays.

Re: Rod reviews

My take on Lasse’s video is: 1) the effect of rod action on loop shape is much less than we think 2) however, there is a small effect on loop shape (driven by counterflex) to which we are very sensitive I think that’s it. This was/is ground-breaking because none of us would have predicted such a sma...

Re: Teaching method

Apologies for not submitting a thorough scientific review here 😁. My aim was to make the point that both “learning styles” and Myers-Briggs are controversial. My view is that any fly casting instructor who tries to ascertain someone’s “preferred learning style” and tries to stick slavishly to it, wi...

Re: Teaching method

Totally agree about Hudl. It’s a brilliant way to build detailed awareness of movement. For me awareness is the key!
