Re: Question about tails

Can we agree on this? (picture below) In my exp. rod tip leaves vertical plane in some point pre RSP1 to the (inner) side (of the caster's position). That puts the rod-leg off to the side seen from above, looking down vertical plane. This is why I disagree with the straight part of your J, Paul. Now...

Re: Question about tails

8C56D053-9A39-41FB-B1FB-8173DE84D182.jpeg So I can see we are discussing different things here. An inverted tailing loop for me is 5 not what Bernd is drawing. And ok I can kind of see Bernd’s point but that’s a whole other discussion! I am pretty sure there is a missunderstanding between us. :) 2 ...

Re: Question about tails

Well, a tailing loop ALWAYS was defined as caused by a dip in the accelerational tip path within rod plane. Thus the peak of the resulting wave in the fly-leg can't be in opposite direction. For me, that only indicates you were ALWAYS talking about loops propagated in the vertical direction. Hi Gra...

Re: Question about tails

Well, a tailing loop ALWAYS was defined as caused by a dip in the accelerational tip path within rod plane. Thus the oeak ofcthe resulting wave in the fly-leg can't be in opposite direction. Since we mostly cast sideways (rod plane tilted down let's say 45 degrees) the wave in the fly-leg easily may...

Re: Question about tails

to make that tailing wave happen, you have to speed up the line in the transverse direction, in other words, its the dip, not the rise. Mate, I am afraid I yet don't understand this. I take it, you agree on how I see a tailing for an inverted loop in post 8 (my dawing), right? If you accelerate bac...

which generally narrows as it propagates.
I believe that is not correct per se.

Re: Question about tails

Thanks, Graeme. Excellent video. In my experience all distance experts when driving a fluff to their max distance often get several knots in their leaders, but very rare in the fly line itself. Adding a split shot at the fluff and there will be much less knots as I tried several times. My explanatio...

It becomes a problem when it causes a tangle or knot.
That's an interesting aspect to me. How does the knot happen usually when tailing?

How about this, Graeme?
