### Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Now back to your lost tension cast that fails, do you have one that isn't caused by you altering the casting arc with minus 25ish degrees? As I say, I can get a cast to fail in the same way, but I can't get one to fail that has sufficient velocity to unroll before stepping/throwing the rod/dropping...

### Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Hi Torsten, I asked "If there is no tension in the rod leg in these distance events, why is the rod leg not falling at the same rate we'd expect all objects on earth to fall at? to which you replied: Like above, forces acting against the gravity force such as drag force, change of momentum at the lo...

### Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Hi Graeme, I’ll post this here. So I understand what you are saying. The flycasting loop wave is actually travelling vertically upwards from the rod tip and at 90 degrees from the casting direction. So for you the loop straightening is it’s amplitude and the wave length is half the height of the lo...

### Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Cool, it's a bend caused by the medium traveling, the two others are traveling in the medium. Are you really saying the medium doesn't travel sideways when we place a mend in the line? Now back to your lost tension cast that fails, do you have one that isn't caused by you altering the casting arc w...

### Re: Analysing loop propagation 2

Graeme, I'd like someone to explain why the angular momentum in the loop disappears when the tension in the rod leg is removed. It does not disappear since the loop is able to roll over even if the rod leg is falling down (zero tension). The string like approach is unable to catch a zeroing of the ...

### Re: Analysing loop propagation 2

Torsten, Mends must be a constant source of frustration for you. The idea of a mend is to transport the line away from where it would otherwise land. Place a wave in the line and transport it sideways. But for you, a wave can't transport the medium, so there is a paradox. I've said it a hundred time...

### Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

It is interesting to me that you generate them with a truncated stroke or high RSP angle, whereas on your other videos without DN, that angle is less. I get them when I use a truncated stroke on a maximum carry but not on the same carry with a non stop stroke. May be completely irrelevant but I’ll ...

### Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

And happy to call the dolphin nose a wave, just like the tailing loop comes from a transverse wave, and mends are. Not convinced that the loop front is a wave though.. Yep, I get that Lasse. It's the only bend that travels along the line we can't call a wave, even though it can sit between a tail a...

### Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Thanks for your video Graeme, I saw the dolphin nose on the short line cast. I suspect it is sourced to loop speed or lack thereof because it does not happen with a faster moving line. ... I can force them into most casts if I want when I do certain things with the rod tip. Not the widest loops tho...
