Re: Two heads cast at the same time

I agree with Torsten, comparisons are made out of the full context (assumptions). The information given by Josh and Bruce is fine as long as we neglect air drag, but this is the source of losses. And by the way I do not understand that sentence (Graeme in another thread). Energy was dissipated in t...

Re: The point of tapers in fly lines and leaders

Excellent stuff again Lee. Would I be right in thinking that the rates of taper on the Power Spey are slower than on the Scandi? If so, would that mean that the differences in acceleration/drag throughout the cast will be smaller, resulting in very little difference in turnover for the two Power Spe...

Paul

Many thanks to Bruce and Josh for those replies. I feel that those, with Graeme’s sterling work on the other thread, I’m much nearer understanding all this.

Great work!

I really appreciate the time you’ve taken on this.

Thanks again.

Re: The point of tapers in fly lines and leaders

The "at the same time" bit is where the issue is. It doesn't happen at the same time in one cast. If we pull back on the rod leg, we can momentarily increase the speed of the taper and leader going away from us. If we push forward on the rod tip (reducing tension in the rod leg) we can let the ener...

Fab film Lee.

On my iPad I can’t tell which is the orange fly. Can you give us a clue? 😁

Ta!

Re: Angular Momentum

Fascinating Lee, great stuff!

Great to see how the reversed head loop on the fast casts seems to travel slower before kicking violently.

And then even more interesting that there’s not much difference on normal speed casts.
