Fly Casting Video Masterclass

Fly Casting Video Masterclass

Paul Arden | Monday, 9 October 2017

Today I'm launching a new section on Sexyloops that will ultimately see 3 hours of fly casting video tutorials.They were originally the Sexyloops APP, but it is hoped that in this format they become even more useful to you. I'll upload a few videos every week as time allows. You'll also notice that I make mention of the Academy. You'll be hearing much more about this particular aspect as well over the next few weeks.

The first couple of videos are an introduction to the course as well as a short discussion on tackle. Hopefully you can find time to practise the skills that follow - be sure to get involved and post any questions on our discussion forums.

This week Ashly is joining me for four days of Jungle Fishing. My outboard has been playing up and was at the doctors all last week. Hopefully the problem is resolved now - I'll know later today. It's been frustrating not being able to drive flat-out down the lake and seriously curtailed last week's fishing - particularly since Bernd is still fishing every day!

Here in the jungle the Wet Season is closing in fast with evening downpours most evenings. However the lake level is still dropping and is at its lowest level since last year. Low level is good for Snakehead fishing, rain isn't! This is believe is because rain oxygenates the water and the Snakehead don't need to rise so frequently - but that's just my theory.

A big thank you to all of our Hot Torpedo customers for keeping us alive and busy. This week I shall be playing with the T27 RAMPAGE! It will be an interesting rod to fish! In case you missed last week's news, all competition entries in this final quarter receive a Sexyloops Stealth Master Shirt. I'm looking forward to you entries. Email them to me at

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Cheers, Paul
