Re: Oh boy Abel

:secret: It will make a great backup automatic fly reel. I bet if you attached a fly line to it, it would "reel" in your trout. ;)

Re: False cast and distance on the release

The Sharpie mark is actually to measure the amount of line that best "balances" the rod for a fishiing cast. It is different for every person. The 30 feet you mention is the theoretical line mass...

Re: $200 Fly Rod Your Choice

I personally use the Gary Borger Light Touch Fly Rods for fishing Wisconsin. While developing the fly rods, Gary said his 8.5 ft 5 wt was one of the best 8.5 ft 5 wts he had casted.

Re: choosing a 6/7 wt line, suggestions please

The DT line you have chosen to use with a slow or medium action rod actually slows the casting timing even more on a slow action rod for long casts. If you never cast beyond the head length of the...

Re: over-sock ?

I have a controlled experiment of sorts.

Re: Troubleshooting the cast...

I think I know what Eastfly66 means.

For the purposes of this example, we can divide the casting stroke into two parts. The first is the arm movement or "rod path" that creates the "stroke." The...

Re: The basics of a double haul

That is very kind thing you said. Thank you.

The truth is that I've made every beginner's mistake when I learned to double haul.

When you've done as many things wrong as I have, it is easier...

Re: over-sock ?

YES!!!

Use a thin used pair of athletic socks.

Here's the reason.

When you walk, you lift the heel first, and push off the ball of the foot. The heel of the neoprene booty lifts up and rubs...

Re: Troubleshooting the cast...

A sink tip line has a thinner heavier tip section. Because it is thinner with more mass density, that change alone will lengthen your cast because of less aerodynamic drag.

Re: Leader Question

As said by others, leaders are re-usable. In fact I have used the same NON furled leader for several seasons. I think the leader on the 8.5 ft 5 wt that I use in Wisconsin is 3 years old.

Re: What is the worst fly fishing commercial or movie scene?

No typo.

If you begin watching at about 2:59, the stagecoach scene precedes the fly fishing scene. After the stagecoach leaves, at 2:59:55 is when the fly fishing scene begins. At 3:00:01 is the...

Re: What is the worst fly fishing commercial or movie scene?

When there is a fly fishing scene in a movie, I switch to analytic mode. I can’t seem to help myself. Sometime a subtle incongruity that is not at all obvious to most people will stand out for me. I...
