The one pike

Hello Ska, Thanks for your fine feedback and nice reading about your own pike experience. In my experience it can happen, that pike migrate in circles in their part of the water without being in a feeding mood. Still they may have a look at the fly. Those fish are I think nearly incatchable. Far mor...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

My subjective impression was, that a short haul seems to improve the cast for me, but indeed the time window is very small. Very late rotation helps too Hi Torsten, As always, it depends on the specific style one is using, I think. The way Thomas was adding the haul, I don't think it would slow his...

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

Echo TR 13'6" 8# 45° pull avg. 4,1kg (get metric Paul :p) 90° pull avg. 1,4kg Echo boost 9' 8# 45° pull avg. 5,1kg 90° pull avg. 1,7kg Those numbers seem quite high to me. So I just made some measurements, too. Sage One 7136-6 #7 Sage Z-Axis 890-4 #8 On both rods I added between 250 and 600 gramm d...

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

Hi Lasse,
Thanks for sharing those fine numbers!

Those numbers seem quite high to me. So I guess you tried to add max possible force input?
Or did you just try to add the force which you would add in a real fish fight?

What line weights (gram) would you choose for those rods?
Cheers
Bernd

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

At least we can add enough force to bring him out of balance. And he can add enough force to sometimes break quite heavy leaders without the help of any rocks. Anyway as you know it's exactly the way how we fight him which makes for a short or long fight mostly, isn't it?

Fighting fish: Two-handed, single handed and stiffer rods

Hello Johnny, What mainly tires out the salmon at the end of your line, is a) the level of force acting against the fish and b) the direction that force is acting at. Comparing the level of force you add to the fish in regard of rod length, it's fair to summarize: The shorter the rod, the more force...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Hi Gene, Good question, not easy to answer though. I think I can use a wider arc when releasing early without loosing a) proper trajectory and b) proper loop front. Seems to me the line starts shooting earlier and trajectory aims higher here. Would have to slomo-study to back up. What I don't have t...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Assuming that you start casting the D-loop with overhang of the same length as the haul, then the increase in line speed created by the haul should allow you to shoot more line. No, since you have less line in the D. The apex will be closer to the tip. If in the moment your line hangs down the tip,...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Paul, Lasse, Former FFFE and EFFA asked for the line hanging down the tip for at least one second (or more). Pulling the line back it should never leave the water at any point. Inconsistancies in examinations took place like in all organisations of course... Lasse, About the video: 25m beach to plan...
