    Moy cast video

    Your saying to roll cast to bring the line to the surface then water haul? I can see this working if you raise the rod tip, bring it back to form the d loop necessary for a good roll cast, then fire to get the line up. But that still doesn’t address his poor use of the bottom hand. Looks to me like his style falls exactly into the single hand style of thrusting the casting hand forward. I much prefer hugging the rod and using more bottom hand. But to each his own

    Moy cast video

    Alan....in reference to our earlierposta and the discussion of sinking heads.....with the Moy low back casthow do you ever get the line off the water? The first step in any cast I make is a slow rod raise to get the line to the surface. Once that surface tension is broken the cast can commence

    Two handed overhead Cast

    I’ll start a new topic....Moy cast video

    Two handed overhead Cast

    just to keep a conversation going......lots of good info...but....with the small angle of the rod to his arm during the forward cast how does his bottom hand come into play. A far batter method IMHO is underhand casting.check out the Mortenson videos which I think is a far superior casting style. Just saying!

    Welded Loop Trouble

    Could also install Dacron loop and be done with it.

    Dredging

    Great answer...thanks. Actually the fist is made by airflo. Basically 7’ float, 7’ intermediate, 7’ sink 3. Now, put about 10’ of t14 on the end and you got a system worth consideration.

    Dredging

    Alan....you choice is 30’ T17 for 510 total right to the mono running line. Assume you are dragging crabs on the bottom. This question is centered on the difficulty of picking that load up to initiate a cast. Personally I’ve done a load of crab dragging but always with a sinking tip. Most flats I drag on are not deep enough to limit this setup from reaching bottom pretty easily. I’m interested in what cast your using to pick that long load up and wouldn’t something like a Rio FIST with sinking tip make that job easier.

    SGS Shooting heads

    Thanks Alan....got you number...but due to slow posting during winter I thought it might be more interesting to post on the form. So, I’ll keep asking the questions so all of us can stay involved...thanks

    Alan.....so your running t line directly off your shooting line? If your using .... say t 8.....30 feet would be 240 grains. T 14then would be 420. both figures well below the grain weights for most rods. How does this work?

    The reason I ask is a reference to the rio line selector app. Put my info in and it came back the preferred line was skagit max. In the past I have always used a OBS integrated line. I can certainly see the advantage of multiple heads for the skagit system but was concerned how they overhead cast. Do you experience any problems with using them off the beach. Thanks

    So...in general...you prefer a scandi or skagit Head vs. a rio outbound short weight forward head approach

    Alan....out of interest....what head do you find best for strippers in the salt. 3-4”flies, overhead.

    Dislodged crab.

    Forgot to mention....I do a bit of sight fishing for strippers on the flats and fish them exactly like permit. My primary fly is Peter Smiths permit crab. Same one I use for permit. Strippers have no problem attacking it on the fall. Plus I also catch a bunch in mid water levels using it as a swimming crab.
