    A little play with three different stances as to which is better for accuracy at 15 meters. First open, second closed and last extreme square :-P

      RIO's UniSpey is the ultimate mid length, general purpose Spey line, with three different style options. 1) A fully integrated floating line is ideal for casters that prefer one piece fly lines 2) The full floating and, 3) VersiTip shooting heads are an excellent choice for casters that like the versatility of switching between shooting heads. This short film shows the UniSpey in action, and illustrates the different models available.

              • Kickback of tip from sudden angular acceleration of the rod butt with no line

                A large initial clockwise acceleration can excite a sizable second vibration mode in the rod. Consequently as the velocity of the lower section of the rod goes up the velocity of the tip will go down. A smoother rotation of the butt would not tend to excite this second mode. Also the tip load from the line would also reduce the amplitude of the second mode vibration. Consequently you do not see the tip jump back and create slack in the line at the start of a normal casting stroke.

                • Lee Cummings fly casting Skagit cheater / 15ft sink tip shooting head


                  from Lee Cummings fly casting / Added

                  This awesome little set up is handy for fishing the tightest of the tight when it comes to available casting space. The head in this example compromises of a 5ft Rio floating Skagit cheater coupled with the 1.5" per second 15ft sink tip that came with the Rio Skagit system. The running line is simple mono so as to offer minimum resistance and maximum range to this super short and deadly fishing shooting head.

                    • Anatomy of a thrust


                      from SIM Suisse Simfly.ch / Added

                      In our style, the brief and directional forward push of the elbow, the front arm oriented towards the target and moving on a parallel trajectory (a kind of "thrust"), plays a fundamental role in the deliver cast at the decisive moment of the maximum power application ( MPA). The red rectangle indicates the timing and the duration of the MPA. The black horizontal line underlines the horizontality of the forward push of the elbow and of the forearm on the thrust. Some defects : - Light slack line when the back cast begins (00:15). It does not affect significantly the back cast. - Movement of the line on the forward cast (01:00) is probably not due to a loss of tension. - The forward cast begins slightly too soon (00:41), pause is a bit too short. Some interesting points to discuss: - "S" shape of the rod on the forward cast (00:06 and 00:55) : this shape is obtained without pull-back. Why ? - The rod do not load and unload in the same way on the forward cast (FC) and on the back cast (BC); consenquently the BC loop shape can not mirror the FC loop shape. In the "classic" style it is a fault. - The loading mode of the rod on the deliver cast, just before the "S" shape (00:53) ! Dans notre style, l'avancée brève et directionnelle du coude, l'avant- bras dirigé vers la cible et se déplaçant sur une ligne parallèle à la surface de l'eau (thrust), joue un rôle fondamental dans le lancer de présentation au moment décisif de l'application maximum de la force (MPA). Le rectangle rouge signale le timing et la durée du MPA. La ligne horizontale noire souligne l'horizontalité de la poussée avant du coude et de l'avant-bras sur le thrust. Quelques défauts: - Légère perte de tension au début du lancer arrière (00:15). Elle n'affecte pas sérieusement le lancer arrière - Le mouvement de la soie sur le lancer avant (01:00). Est-ce le signe d'une perte de tension ? - Le lancer avant débute un tout petit peu trop vite, pause un poil trop courte (00:41). Quelques points intéressants à discuter: - La forme en "S" de la canne sur le lancer avant (00:06 et 00:55) : cette forme n'est pas due à un pull-back. - La canne ne se charge pas de la même manière sur le lancer arrière et avant; il en découle que la boucle arrière et avant diffèrent. Dans le style "classique" cela serait considéré comme une faute. - La manière dont la canne se charge sur le lancer avant, juste avant qu'elle ne prenne cette forme en "S" (00:53) !
