Leader connections

Hi all,

I was wondering what your favourite leader connections were? Mine is the needle knot, but i also use a 6" butt section needle knotted to the fly line with a perfection loop in the end for fishing. Does anybody else do this? I think that's a really old way of doing it.

All the best

Re: New PB! 122' 3" with a #5

Thank you all! :D I am very pleased with the distance, but of course consistency would be great. I was using a short leader (8' 6") so i will definitely lengthen this for a BFCC event, or just practice in general. Begs the question, what leader design do you use? Tapered leader + tippet or make a le...

New PB! 122' 3" with a #5

Hi all, Thanks to James and Paul, i have made a significant jump in distance with a #5 (Ballistic pro performance) 122' 3"! What made the difference for me? I think it was; 1. Practicing very hard with single handed carry, #5 60' shooting head 2. Stretching back on the back cast 3. Hauling hand stra...

Re: Line management video/description

Hi Paul,

I do the same as Graeme, it just takes a lot of trial and error depending on how much line you have out :) I usually start out with 5 strips on the little finger, then 4 on the ring, then 3 on the middle etc for your standard distances. It's only a guide of course. :)

All the best!

Re: What do you think?

That is the reality but it should not prevent the sport giving it a shot. Absolutely, John. Interesting point about the LED wall, that would be a great idea, incorporating a couple of camera operators to track the nose of the loop would be needed i think. Finding a way to make it incredibly bright ...

Re: What do you think?

Is there anymore big events? There used to be a singlehanded distance comp too on CLA, it was cool with a grandstand and audience for the final, even if the anouncer said I was using a new technique called the doublehaul 🙈 Cheers Lasse Maybe the announcer had never seen it done as good as yours, La...

Re: What do you think?

Hi Nick, The two most important considerations of any grip are how it facilitates power transmission and the amount of wrist movement it allows. There are other considerations like injury risk and difficulty but if you consider the two primary issues, ditch the finger on top grip if you want to ach...

Re: Old felt

(and girls who have big feet)


😂😂😂😂

I seem to recall seeing almost identical felt in hobby craft. Maybe try a craft store? Cheap as anything, £0.50 :sorcerer:

All the best

Re: What do you think?

Hi Paul, Thank you! Yes, absolutely :D actually from that video it's impossible to tell but i'm casting with finger on top :) It is a bit far isn't it, it's not what i envisioned at all, the weather next week looks great so i'll take my tape to see if I've made any improvements over my PB. The back ...
