Re: 90 degree change Single Spey

Hi Paul

It’d be brilliant if you could get some video of your 90 deg. single Spey with 65ft of MED out of the tip. I’d love to learn how to do it.

I struggle to do that with a 65ft head and a 15ft rod! 😁😁

Cheers

Re: Weedless Frog

I tried his Gutless Frog for pike.

I had lots of takes, but none stuck. I was just using straight shank hooks, and suspect that some kind of keel hook design may have worked better. In the end I switched over to standard mouse/gurgler patterns, and got much better hook-ups.

Re: Weedless Frog

These look good. Think the hook patterns are critical.

Re: The various qualifications

Hiya

SANA isn’t a qualification, it’s the governing body for game fishing in Scotland.

FAQs on SGAIC (Scottish Game Angling Instructor Certificate) are here.

Cheers.

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Superb Lee!

On the second video I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Can you describe what happened to which head? Ta!

Re: safety

Paul, there may be no one to pull you back in the boat. But a proper life jacket will turn you over and then maybe you'd still be alive when you woke up! Waking up dead isn't something I'd want to try. :upside: I think if you're guiding, you prob. should be able to offer the client a life jacket, an...

Re: safety

Paul I don’t think it’s about banging your head necessarily. I think there’s a greater likelihood of someone passing out and then falling in (could be dehydration, stomach upset, other bugs, other medical conditions etc.). The other thing to think about is helping the people left in the boat in gett...

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Hi Merlin

Many thanks for that. Makes sense to me in principle, and explains how tapers can be said to both accelerate and decelerate loops depending on parameters.

Cheers!

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Paul I am now wondering if both points of view have merit. Merlin’s post points to differing effects depending on how thin the line is, so up to a point a taper will accelerate the line (which I think Lee’s Scandi video shows), but the effect depends on the rate of taper (Lee’s Powerspey video), and...
