My casts have always been on a 1.5 m x 1.2 m platform but when I started with the 5 weight Trout Distance, I could not control the required carry length without stepping during both forward and back casts.

Re: PUALD Challenge

Hi Paul, Hope all is well you mate, the ban on Australians travelling overseas, without specific Government approval, has been extended to March 2021 but at the moment, community transmission is under control - the benefit of a small population living on a big island. I remember watching the news th...

Re: PUALD Challenge

I have old lines which would be ineligible currently, no labelling on the tip and will need to update in the New Year. So, what is the closing date of this challenge?

Re: Current distance stroke

Hi Merlin,

I do find the step interesting, any increase in hand speed adds distance.

Re: Blocking

I should clarify my answer above about the rotational axis for casting Paul. The actual axis is a straight line that goes through the top of your head and your centre of mass to the ground. That axis starts as an acute angle to the horizontal and moves in the X Y plane to the vertical axis, being pe...

Hi Paul "Would block primarily be using the body to naturally restrict further movement? For example putting the shoulder in the way of the backcast or rotating to the maximum body twist available in either direction?" Yes, but in the linear direction only, because it does not require a pairing with...
