Re: I need more distance

I'm a bit surprised no-one has mentioned taking a lesson. It helps to know what you should be practicing or you will probably just keep practicing your mistakes and the big mistake will be applying...

Re: Always throw a hook or tuck cast

It sounds as if you have decent loop formation or the leader wouldn't kick very much. It's an easy fix. As you false cast 30' or so deliberately try to underpower the forward cast so that it doesn't...

Fly casting certification

Not really about casting, more about instructing and casting certification.

Generally in the UK and other countries we take the assessment because we want to instruct and it's a validation of our...

Re: Top 3 For Bettering Your Cast

My last encounter with a clouser was quite painfull. I was ten feet above the water with trees close behind, my steeple cast went wrong and the damn thing richoched off the back of my head. Even with...

Re: Top 3 For Bettering Your Cast

Hey bigjim, I'm nobody special, despite what Dan says :). I do concentrate on the creation of a good loop with beginners. It doesn't have to be tight just good and I emphasis right from the start...

Re: Top 3 For Bettering Your Cast

bigjim, I understand where you are coming from but #1 doesn't work for me.

The rod can only do one thing...straighten. It has been calculated, by better men than me, I might add, that the...

Re: Having trouble feeling the load in the backcast

Mike,

You need to change your perspective. You are not trying to throw a flyline, you are trying to create a loop. The loop is the thing that takes your fly out there, it's the heart of the fly...

Re: What is considered a far cast?

Distance is measured from the casting line to the wool tag. Always the wool tag, which is bad luck if your cast has collapsed, which it often does in competition, especially with the tournement...

Re: Beginner: Different technique for slow rod?

There are two things needed to cast the line, note I say cast not throw, which I get the impression you are doing. One is casting arc which is the angular change of the rod during the stroke and the...

Re: World record distance WF 5wt?

Well done Bill, fantastic casting. I might need to see you for some lessons.

The thing about casting the five for distance is that you need superb technique, and lots of practice. Both stand you...

Re: World record distance WF 5wt?

As far as I am aware full line distance casting, and five weight in particular, in competition has only been around for a few years. Certainly, when I first got interested in around 2004, it still...

Re: World record distance WF 5wt?

I don't think there is an official #5 weight record. In the UK we have the BFCC which is the only national club and these are our records Records | BFCC - Home Of Uk Fly Casting...

If any of you ever feel the need to write something then I am...

Re: Amazing natural caster pt. 3.

That is pretty amazing. No legs, no weight transfer and no height. Astonishing. I will have to try it sometime.

I didn't see any creep as such but Bill does have a bit more time than he thinks he...

Re: How do you know you have the right line for your rod?

I know all I need to know about CCS. It was done to death on Sexyloops. We even created a rod data base Sexyloops Rod Database (http://www.sexyloops.com/eric/database/rodtablesorted.php)

Re: How do you know you have the right line for your rod?

I have never heard of this line checker. What is it and how does it work. I have a drawer full of lines I never bagged and marked and I now don't have a clue what weight they are.

Re: Amazing natural caster...the update.

Hey Jim, fancy meeting you here.

Lines are more important than the rod, usually. For long carry a DT or SA Mastery expert distance (MED) or the Barrio GT140. Rio also make a distance line but I...

Re: Amazing natural caster...the update.

What a refreshing thread. It's nice to see someone getting encouragement rather than what sometimes happens on some of the UK forums where if you can cast over 75' you are regarded as a bit of a...
