Re: Casting to music (with lumilines)

Great topic, Paul! As you know i used to be a pro pianist, and still do occasional concerts here and there, so i will try and chip in. I'm not a 'baroque' 'classical' 'romantic' period only person, i actually listen to a lot of music. Part of my training was to analyze music, and quite literally pic...

Re: Laser Drill for Tracking

Hi Carol, I have not tried the laser pen to check tracking, but i think i will now after you have mentioned it as i have heard about this quite a lot and seems to work very well indeed. For instance, using the western casting style with the hand and shoulder aligned, the laser light on the back cast...

Re: First Lesson

Nick, I make sure to keep the orange backing on the reel, but you make a fair point, seeing as that cast only went 198,5 feet, I'm sure white backing is the answer, I'll respool asap ! Good man! You may find that casting a line with a lack of orange pigments will tear a hole in the space-time conti...

Re: Teaching with COVID

Hi Paul, Changing teaching methods and not being stuck in a rut is a sign of a very good teacher. After all, we are always learning, and this pandemic has never happened before so it's a very interesting topic mate :cool: I do think it's going to be different for everyone depending on where you are,...

"Fly you fool!" Karlsson 2020 😂😂😂😂

Also, i think that orange backing is slowing your rod hand down, Lasse. Have you tried white? 😂 ;)

Great advice by both, that's great stuff indeed.

Re: First Lesson

Thanks Nick and Paul. You've pretty much provided me some validation that holding the rod with the student is not a preferred method, regardless of the culture because, even in a touchy-feely culture there are exceptions. Personally, I find the practice awkward. :blush: But Nick, I can see where it...

Re: First Lesson

Great advice, Paul. Thanks! If you can get away without doing it then it's much better of course.

How many times have you come across a student that has the line on the wrong way roun, even though a shop has done it?!

All the best
