Video of Piffen casting

Congrats to your 9000:nd post! I really hate that it is so dark this time of year which makes it hard to practice in the weekdays and see what I am doing at the same time, add the cold to that. Do you mean that I should throw a tight loop so it lands without unrolling then? I can say that I have wat...

Strong hooks small flies

I have bought a package each of the hooks Boisker mentioned above. The Kamasan B911x Eyed and Kamasan Animal Eyed Barbless hooks in size 12. I did an unscientific test using a scale from the Swedish anglers society (Sportfiskarna), certified for registering to their big catch database, with two hook...

Cheers mate! I'll go down to the water on saturday and/or sunday, hopefully both, and have a go in daylight. I have watched the Snakehead shot video again and I see how soft your casts are and I must learn to slow down and be more gentle. You mentioned tapping a drum, but I can tell you that when I ...

I might add that it's 9 meters of flyline outside the tip on the video. But it strikes me as a bit hard to lift that amount of line out of the water before the CS, I know you say 2 meters for Snakehead PUALD though. When I tried this the first time with the popper I did it all wrong and got some rea...

Heres the PUALD from a bit of a crappy angle maybe. I think I need to stiffen my wrist up, it seems too floppy. I don't know if I still use too much power in my strokes. I am still more pushing than pulling to get the loop tight, probably because of the floppy wrist? It was a little windy so I belie...

OK, I've got some studying and practicing to do. About the PUALD cast, any specific angle you'd like to see it from? I'll see if I have the possibility to do it on water or if have to make do with casting on grass.

Cheers mate!

Thanks for the tip Paul. I've got the APP so I have just watched it. I hadn't watched that before actually. But I have purchased everything on it. Any other episodes you think I should concentrate on?

Happy days

Video of Piffen casting

Hi Paul! I think what makes me us all that power and large strokes is that I become stressed out, thinking that the line will fall to the ground, but seeing it from the outside I understand that I actually press down the rod leg closer to the ground, the more power I use. So I'll certainly try to mi...

No I can't say that I have done that. So I should cast softer I take it? I'll try that next time I am out practicing.
