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

Let me try and explain my thoughts about casting arcs and their impact. Thanks for that explanation John. Matty was not shooting line during this demonstration until the final cast. He was also not trying to get anything like his maximum distance - I only asked him to make a few false casts carryin...

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

I guess it’s all part of the learning process. So here’s a question Graeme, since we are discussing carry. If you were to ask Chris to double the amount of line he was carrying what changes would he have to make? Increase translation, increase haul distance and speed, increase casting arc, lengthen...

Hi Graeme

I would love to see a clip of the loop collapsing after it appears, because you throw the rod forward 🙂

Cheers
Lasse
I tried to video that during the week but was not successful because I've lost my nice dark background location. :( I'll get a video when I can.

Re: Focus Points

I'm not disturbed by it since I don't know what a wave packet on a fly line is. :D

In my case, I don't need to have equations for physics to be useful. For me, physics needs to be predictive to have value. I need to know that if I do X, the result will be Y.

Cheers,
Graeme

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

Yep, it is a mend of sorts because I'm doing things that would change the position of the rod leg in space even though I have no intention of landing that mend. I suppose we could call it a delayed pull back, but it seems a little more prolonged than I would offer as "pull back" myself. To me, "pull...

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

I'm seeing this bloke with no hair also lifting the rod tip as the back cast rolls out but to a lesser extent. :D

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

I may have missed something here - up and sideways. Sideways would be a tracking deviation to change the plane of the casts? That deviation causes “boing” management problems at Loop Straight, it also causes problems with tracking because a canted loop straightens at a different point to a vertical...

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

That is my experience and I find the lift reduces the stroke length and hence, the line speed is diminished compared with the stroke without the rod lift. ... I may be missing something but I cannot progress past that limiting arc when chasing a sag-free backcast with a long carry. When we open up ...

Re: The Roadrunner

Our local birds also provide similar entertainment. Kookaburras and magpies will often come and investigate the fluff and chase it. The kookaburras watch from the trees and will swoop from 50 metres away. :D
