Re: Improve the pick up

Thanks Paul.
Also a slight change in tackle. This is a Helios2 9,6’. It just feels slightly lighter and crisper. Not sure it’s what makes the difference, but I think it’s more comfortable, therefore I feel more relaxed when casting.
Still a SLX line.
Thanks for all the help.

Re: Improve the pick up


Getting there.
Think I can still improve the trajectory and tighten the loop on the back cast.
Hopefully the legs look better on the forward cast and I’m concentrating on as little power as possible.

Re: Improve the pick up

Thanks Nick.
I’ll work on that.
You are correct, the wind was brisk (30-40mph) into and off the left. I was, incorrectly, aiming high on the forward cast. I had heard of the 180 rule, but had failed to appreciate the significance. Big error.
Thanks for all the feedback.

Re: Improve the pick up

At least if I’m ever asked to demo a tailing loop, I know I can make one pretty consistently!!! 😂

Re: Improve the pick up

Cool. Thanks Paul I will work on the triangle and improve the back cast. I will also work on triangle and reduced power on the forward cast. It’s interesting to note - “aimed back down to the pickup target”. That’s not where I’ve been aiming at all. I’ve been aiming 4-6’ above there to try to allow ...

Re: Improve the pick up

Wow, now I’m super confused as to what I should be doing? I can’t see a huge difference in these two images, from a trajectory point of view? Other than one is a lot more sexy than the other!! However, I agree, Pail has stopped his hand closed to his ear, my stop is out in-front of my nose. So you s...

Re: Improve the pick up

Hi Ivan The image is from the video, the tip is not travelling behind Paul? So is it that my stroke is not on plane in the forward phase and I have not extended far enough forward? Surely if I am trying to perform a PUALD (into a 30+Mph headwind) and I extend the rod tip out behind me I am going to ...

As long as the tip of the rod, in the throw behind, remains in front, you will not be able to have a regulated return.
Thanks Ivan, but sorry, I don’t fully understand. The rod tip stays in front of what? What should I aim to keep the rod tip behind?

Thanks

Re: Aide memoire's?

Nice one, good take on the old rotten apple on a stick analogy 🙂 Remember the cartidges that undeveloped film used to come in? Great for putting on the tip of a flyrod to get people to accelerated smoothly, bring a bag though, as its alot of exercise picking them up further and further away 🙈😂 Chee...
