Re: Maintaining line tension

Another thing, so I've heard, is that not all exam venues have water, so the candidate has to perform the task on the grass. In places where there is water, the candidate has the option. Same thing for the roll cast. It does make some sense in that, most of the time when teaching a group of stark ra...

Re: Maintaining line tension

The CCI exam has PULD on it. Task #16 asks you to teach (and perform it). But I totally agree that it is completely different on water than on land. On water, you can see the line "waterfall out of the honey," and the water provides adequate tension to actually feel it as you lift. Doing on grass, s...

Re: Maintaining line tension

So I just gave the ole flick a good try with 45' out of the rod tip foot to fly and, bam!, line tension on the back cast of the initial pick up. I couldn't quite tell, but I don't think the loop was exploding. I had been doing a drill using a slow lift, then a regular elbow-lift stroke after that. J...

Re: Maintaining line tension

Thanks Paul, both or the vid and the explanation of how you teach it. I've been lifting somewhat horizontally (arm movement, then when the rod tip has reached a certain angle, start the quick back cast on an upward angle, ending with my hand just in front of my face at about ear level. I am finding ...

Re: Maintaining line tension

Paul, speaking of line tension, how do you get more tension into the back cast on the initial pick up? Is it just adding speed, i.e., raising the elbow faster during the stroke? And for the life of me, I can't find the recent video you did on the PULD where Ashley was filming you either at a pond or...

Re: CI test question

For anyone else having elbow issues, I found this set of exercises for “golfer’s elbow” - to my understanding these are symmetrical and should work for the tennis version as well: https://www.summitmedicalgroup.com/library/adult_health/sma_medial_epicondylitis_exercises/ Hey, Jarmo! Thanks for the ...

As far as durability goes we shall have to see however they are meant for scrambling over rocks.
Good point. I look forward to your final analysis and then a picture of the camo'd orange. :D

Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

Of course width is the problem with boots not designed for waders since neoprene socks affect foot circumference more than length. For example 5mm of wool sock + wader neoprene sock make the length need 10mm bigger. But the circumference is added by about 15mm. That's good to know when considering ...

Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

Looking at the Ladies' Canyon Guide, the color is not as bright but the color scheme is obnoxious. Wonder if sharpie ink would compromise them in some way. If it's safe, one can make custom camo, but with the orange boots, you'd have to cover up every inch of color. I suppose in canyoneering, one wa...
