something else - noises

t.z. | Friday, 25 November 2016

I am an acoustician and work with alls sorts of noise. Music is the better of them, depending on what you like of course. The human hearing is extremely accuse. The only sense we have working in 360-degree kind of fashion. I guess our ancestors would know whether that cracking branch at 67-degrees behind them on the left side, about 128 meters away was caused by a bear, a friend or just the wind.

So how noise is perceived is very much dictated by what we associate with it. The sweet old grandpa in his flat is certainly not amused by the darth vader type growling coming from the death metal festival stage. It´s all in the ears of the beholder so to say. So why on earth should a little clicking sound be so annoying? Well, when happening in a fly rod it s even annoying to a fly fishing death metal fan.

easy fix .. do not wax your rod ferrules. The wax builds up eventually and makes the joint

uneven and causes them to "wobble" and make that noise.

No fun really.

- and if you have, clean it off both parts of the ferrule. 

and here a rather unrelated video
