Ashly and I plan to visit Tasmania for a month or two starting in December. We haven't booked our flights yet but will be doing so this week. If you hadn't noticed there is a new section on Sexyloops - a flycasting video Masterclass. Which is basically all the APP videos. If you purchased the APP we will be making all these videos available for you to download shortly. There is a plan to put them on a DVD too at some point but I don't know when.
This week I am finalising the Sexyloops Academy. I have ten casts that you will need to master that will bring you to Essentials Level. Every cast has to land the fly in a hoop. What I need to do, however, is work out the precise distances involved and the hoop size/s. This I will be doing this week. Obviously both of these conditions have a distinct bearing upon how challenging is the exercise. I think some of the casts might surprise you, but it is highly orientated towards practical fly fishing. To pass the Elite level you will need to train to be a flycasting jedi! I think that this will be a great way for Sexyloopers to hone flycasting skills without going down the Instructor route. Although one doesn't precluse the other of course.
Also at some point this week I will have to shut the Board for a day. I need to update the software so that we can run the latest PHP software on the Sexyloops Web Server. This will then allow us to build another forum for running the old Board. Only then will our server migration be complete.
Lots of rods being built at the moment. A couple of Instructor rods going out tomorrow. I'll post some photos later in the week. Thanks guys!
Have a great week.
PS soon we will have a small change to the Front Page line up. TZ has an FP or two left after having contributed a quite outstanding series in the Friday slot. Very many thanks Thomas - I've enjoyed every one! In December Mac Brown will be joining the FP line-up.
