Sorry to dissapoint, but I´m some stinky dude, with too much testosteron and no manners, who happens to be a big David Lynch fan...
Need to drop Paul a mail for a more manly nickname, to stop the confusion. I have something classy, but manly like Tuck Cockford or Bruce Mansteroid in mind...

Paul Arden wrote:To be honest Andy I think it's a bit of nonsense. Bunging the line on the ground with a Switch Cast relies upon having a nice clear runway to do it. Whenever I'm fishing there is either water or a jungle there. Far better to learn an aerielised dynamic D with an anchor - otherwise you'll need to take a strimmer with you fishing.

Cheers, Paul
Well i finally gor out with a snobee designed line and was chucking my normal 3 fly 20 foot leaders about 70-80 foot with out needing to check my back cast.
this is now an essential due to walthamstowe ressers now being a wetlands center with visitors poncy cafe ?lecture /display /interactive display areas ,not to mention a specially built bat and swift tower.
The previous non fishing visitors tended to be birders who were not a problem ,now we have family groups with toddlers who have no concept of whats going on .
A happyish bunny here as i know with some practice i can reall work on this set up and not worry about hooking some snottty nosed little b and facing agressive parents!

Cool to hear Andy :cool:

And it goes to show that Paul needs to be more open, and willing to learn. ;)
