Re: Less force, more power. Contradiction or not?
I assume he means apply force smoothly. But I have yet to hear a guide or instructor describe the physics of fly casting in an accurate or meaningful way. At best, the information they have given me is not nonsense.
But there is no way to achieve "more power" with "less force" in a fly cast, especially considering the "abrupt stop" everyone aims to achieve. Stopping abruptly requires application of lots of force.
