Re: Physics Q/As for the casual reader

For what it's worth, I love the idea. It'd be a central database that summarizes years of accumulated knowledge and experience. At the end of each summary, perhaps there could be links to the more in-depth, equation-oriented physics debates for those willing to enter that zone.

Re: Using Video while teaching

Thank you, Jarmo!!

Pretty amazing difference. The ffplay feature is pretty keen. One of these days I may learn to use a complicated video editing tool, but it seems like it will take a bit of dedication and mental CPUs. I like good ole C:\>

Re: Thinner Lines = higher speed

Was a conclusive consensus every achieved at your post-competition soirée? We were just talking about this very thing (or something close enough) last night in our CCI COVID Zoom meeting.

Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

Anyone had a look at canyoning boots? I have a guide friend who swears by them. Think this was the brand http://www.upandunder.co.uk/Watersports/Clothing/Footwear/P---Canyon-Guide---35531/ . Those look really interesting, though perhaps a bit hot?? I've not done any canyoning, but have spent a litt...

Re: Casting flys and yarn indicator in tandem over large distance

Now he was talking about a hopper-dropper rig, but perhaps it makes some sense for two nymphs. I've not tried it yet because I've not fished hoppers yet this year, and the size n...

Re: Line management video/description

Its a hook you use to hang your towels on 😉 Here its just flued onto a par of waders, to hang your lineloops on, for management 😊 That's all I need is more stuff hanging off of me when I'm fishing.

I don't know what it's supposed to look like, but the pic in the link looks like a cancerous jellyfish to me. :laugh: :laugh: Even with reading glasses on. :D Even though I'm nowhere near ready to start working on an MCI, this is a great topic.
