Wind Roulette

Monday, 22 August 2016

Unfortunately the wind dominated the world championships again. Some great performances from up and coming stars Maxime McKormick and Gard Thomson. Outstanding to watch Glenn McKormick and Chris Korich. Huge performances from Tellis Katsiogannis, Mikael Blomberg and Dmitri Borovkov.

Making the Cast

Tuesday, 23 August 2016

When flats fishing, “making the cast” often means “right there, right now!” While there are a number of skills that one can practice for flats fishing (either wading or from a boat), this FP will focus on casting to a series of lawn targets. These exercises are based on American Casting Association (ACA) competition games, as well as the games presented in Jim Chapralis’ book, Master your Fly Casting! Practiced with focus, these exercises can help you be faster and more accurate when you need a cast to be “right there, right now!”.

Fly Fishing Trips - Stolen Luggage

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

Worst case: You arrive in the perfect destination of your fly fishing dreams, but your most important fly fishing tackle never does! Of course you can't buy any new tackle in these destinations. How to avoid all this to happen? I'd like to offer my experience.

Thanks for a great weekend

Thursday, 25 August 2016

Having not long returned from the World Fly Casting Championships in Nelijarve, Estonia, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the organisers. The whole weekend was run very professionally with the timers, distance judges and scrutineers all doing an excellent job. The casters themselves played their part to, being ready to walk on to the platform as soon as the previous competitors had finished, thus ensuring the day ran efficiently and to time. This is in stark contrast to a typical BFCC competition where sometimes people seem surprised that they’re even in a competition when they’re called (yes, we have to call them). This sort of conversation is often had:

sexyloops fly tying school - skype

Friday, 26 August 2016

The technical world is always in a development - which direction one never really knows. Sometimes it feels new technology makes things go counter productive, specifically with communication. As much as I like the written word, email an texting can lead to a lot of misunderstandings, specially in a tuition. In the the good old days face to face tuition was the standard. Showing others how things are made. Let the steal with their eyes and watch them try themselves and correct them … fantastic.

Sometimes I am not too happy writing about fly tying and fishing. It sure feels much better to show it. Be together and try together. The teacher learns a lot as well as the student.

So I have started to teach fly tying via Skype quite a while ago. It´s really cool as one has so many possibilities, specifically when using small cameras or smartphones for the task. I am sure this type of work will increase over the years.

When you follow Sexyloops you have sure not missed the World championships in Flycasting in Estonia. What an amazing event. I really would have liked t be there to watch. I was particularly impressed to hear how well Ashly did. What an achievement after such short time in the sports. Paul truly is an remarkable teacher. Wonder if he could give lessons via video conference?

A nice spot...

Saturday, 27 August 2016

To be stranded for a few days!!

I managed to flatten the truck battery last night and of course I have no jumper leads. Looks like I have a small hike today. There was a time when I would always flatten the battery uploading Sexyloops, then the tag line was "Sexyloops - coming from a hill top near you" because after uploading I would bump start the truck. There aren't many hills in Estonia.

Fishing. Rafting. Tubing. Swimming. Paddle boarding. Soaking tired feet. Everything.
