Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Ah, I'm with you Lasse! Thanks for clarifying that πŸ€“

It's truly a fantastic book, I like the modular approach that he incorporates into his work. What pages are you mentioned in, Lasse? πŸ˜„

All the best

Re: Timing - just the fly line, or the leader and fly line?

Great stuff, James! Short and sweet πŸ˜€ If people do get sag do you ask them to try and start the next stroke a 'tiny' bit earlier?

Additionally, do you think the end of the leader/fly popping is a big problem? I.E. Not an almighty crack

All the best

Timing - just the fly line, or the leader and fly line?

Hi all, I don't see this one discussed a lot, and it has come about because an angler asked me a couple of days ago. He watched the Joan Wulff DVD and she mentions that she waits for the fly line to unroll (she does btw), and not the leader. Just out of interest, who waits for the fly line to unroll...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

How would you describe it? I'm not sure :upside: What could be interesting is a comparison to a video where you think you're pushing - using the same short length of line. I'm not sure about the BFFI - I may be away, however I'm sure we'll catch up for a cast at some point. Cheers, James. Absolutel...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Hi all, First "style" is made crap staccato intentionally since it has been sold here as the be all and end all of all you need in fly-fishing, and that it is the most energy efficient way of casting.... Not quite sure what you mean here, having trouble understanding :cool: Staccato to me (being a m...

Re: Rod reviews

Hi Paul, Only just seen this! Thanks for your thought, Paul. Do you think that a softer rod allows you to relax more? I know for a fast rod you have to be on it, no messing around. Maybe the softer rod is equivalent to breathing in shooting, where you can relax and think about what you are going to ...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

That's a haul and a half! Have you noticed that if you hook a 'stockie' a few fish follow them? I don't know what that is, perhaps they think that the one hooked knows where the food is? They seem to ignore educated trout, though. It's quite bizarre!

All the best

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Bollocks, just because you can't doesn't mean everyone suffers.... πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ That did make me chuckle. Thanks for the detail, Lasse. Interesting there is quite a weight difference between the green headed SLX and the orange SLX. The orange one is heavier, i did weigh them a few months ago just to make su...
