Re: Recent FP from Paul

Hi Paul, Nice video. It does not surprise me that you can cast the #4 line faster than the #7 on the rod you where using. But let's be honest, you created a situation to backup your statement. Try the same with a big pike streamer and see if you get the same results ;) . The problem I had with your ...

Re: Recent FP from Paul

Hi Mike, Good questions. I (think) I feel the same as you do. To be honest, I think things are being made overly complex. Paul says (and I agree) the order of importance is fly --> fly line --> rod I also fish rio outbound short's for pike fishing and choose this heavy line because it casts my strea...

Re: Sea trout distance rods

I am using the Atomsix ST27 10ft. But you (Paul) found it too soft last time you tried it at a BFCC meeting.
It isn't super stiff in the tip. I would like to try something softer in the bottom section and stiffer in the tip.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Site rebuild

Hi Paul, There is loads of stuff you can do to optimize your website. Personally I would have a look if you can index your content into a search engine. I don’t mean Google or the likes, but a search engine your developers manage themselfs. You can ask if they have experience with software called El...

Re: Current distance stroke

Hi Nick, 118ft in still conditions is world class. I am not een expert in the stepping style. When I try it I lack power in my final delivery. To me your final delivery does not look as powerful too, compared to your other style. If I compare it to Bernt’s casting, he seems to rotate a bit later in ...

Re: On enjoyment, fishing and bad casting.

Hi Thomas,
I would not call it pathetic. But if it is, I am at least as pathetic as you are :D
I enjoy the casting as much as the fishing. The feeling and rhythm of good casting is a sheer joy to me.
The day would be a frustrating one if the line would be all over the place.

Cheers, Bart

Re: PUALD Challenge

Great casting guys!
I wish Paul would also join us.
But he is probably busy on his challenge #2. Oh no, he first had to do challenge #1 :p

Re: PUALD Challenge

It’s unreal.
I decided to start learning the stepping stuff.
Let’s see what that brings.
