Re: Using Video while teaching

Hi Paul, I use and recommend an iPad and Hudl Technique and have a library of casting faults and corrections for onsite, side by side comparison. Works very well. John Hi John. I do the same. I like to use 2 Go Pro to film the student (simultaneous front and side angles) then I transfer the video t...

Re: Curve Casts

Hi ! The Italian style curve cast of which Paul struggles to pronounce the name is the "svirgolato" or twist cast :D . It's actually a crossing loop where the fly leg goes left then turn right (if you are right-handed). Playing with the power application and the timing of the shoot, you can also obt...

Italian Casting

Hi John, Don't worry : According to me, the style is less in the tackle you use than in the way you use it :whistle: I practice some casts of the style even with my "regular" gear for tropical bonefish or GT fly-fishing. By the way, the thrust is optional - we recommend it to our student, because it...

Italian Casting

Where do I start ? Will I get away with putting a 3wt line on my 8ft Winston rated 4wt . Any tips ? The casting stroke seems to involve a kind of follow through with no obvious stop . They tried to explain it to me but I just could not get it. I'm in a bad way now, woke up thinking about it ..........

Keys to Distance

There is a lot of translation in Tot's cast, he accomplishes this with his body. He has a very unique style, far less wristy then most other casters. Hi guys ! I am not specialized in distance casting, but I'agree; according to me, there is a lot of translation and a late rotation in Tor's style : ...

Translation - Rotation

Have a good day John. I'm learning Norwegian now, maybe it can add some meters to my cast. :laugh:

Translation - Rotation

Hi John Once again, thank you for your interesting observation. The bodywork and the footwork of Tor are impressive, even if aesthetically speaking the result is... whatever, Tor is not Joan Wulff :D . His haul on the deliver cast is impressive too. Hi Malik, To understand that I will experiment wit...

Translation - Rotation

Hi John, Thank you for your kind answer and very interesting observations. It seems to me that Tor uses more a roto-translation than a translation + a late rotation (what do you think ?) and I would place the start of his rotation closer to 4 than to 5 on the arrow. But you are probably right, and t...
