Re: Tracking ... tracking ... tracking

The above stills are casting a 5 weight MED, still experimenting with rods but that has nothing to do with technique. I need to keeping on both.

Re: Tracking ... tracking ... tracking

Good challenge Phil, like it.

Attached are some photos of a distance hand path without a dip. The first is at the beginning of rod rotation, midway through rod rotation and at counterflex.

Re: Arm Path

Paul is right George, my view of fly distance casting is that there are two primary techniques, and each is delineated by how the caster generates hand speed and thus line speed. One is a linear based movement in which the primary source of speed is movement of the body in the direction of the cast ...

Re: Tracking ... tracking ... tracking

I have experimented with this Phil, you can generate that movement but it is not an essential.

Re: Arm Path

Great observations George. "What I am also asking myself is how does that dip contribute to a successful cast. Helping to maintain a SLP seems likely the major factor but I wonder if there may be something else going on here.......namely, does the dip itself help to transfer additional kinetic energ...

Re: Arm Path

Thanks George, Paul and Dirk, it would be great to view the tracking stills again. I think the dip is a consequence of a casting stroke that generates a vertical (or close to) forearm position as it passes the shoulder, and hence the hand must dip forward of the shoulder to generate both the hand pa...

Re: Arm Path

Thanks Lasse, that is the thread I was after, much appreciated.

Pity the pics aren't available.

I find the hand path interesting, particularly the dip.

Re: Arm Path

Thanks George, the stills showing tracking of hand, elbow and shoulder are what I was seeking, very much appreciated,

Does anyone know what software was used to track the body movement?

Re: Skills and experiments for 2021?

Get to WCs in Hungary, Sweden and Germany in 2021 and cast like JZ.

More importantly, help disadvantaged children enjoy life a tad more.

Re: Fly casting Advice please

Hi Dave, Nice casting, I would focus on one thing at the moment, that being the speed of both hands. The first thing I noticed from your video is that both hands move at close to the same speed. That is a natural outcome and many casters do not progress past that. However, for maximum distance you w...
