I'd like to give it a try, but I don't care for mono as my running line.
just thinkin' out loud here, but any idea how 1 ft of bicycle chain grains out?
I'm thinking superubermegashort skaj, the next new wave in shooting heads.
you rig a no slip mono loop to the inside of the link for better action? maybe a piece of 12 lbs on the back and 8lb off the front, connect the 12lb to the shooting line. you might lose alot of chains.
James, I have no doubt that Bruce got it. It seemed to me you did get that the maker of the video was being sardonic. Maybe I'm wrong.
Brady, now that you put it that way...I'm the moron! Though, I thought the guy was making light, it never occured to me this wasn't an actual technique he advocated and employed. I'll have to watch it again...probably even more funny now.
My bad, wasn't meaning you. More talking to SC. Either way its all good. With some of the ultra hardcore long line purist BS that gets posted here its hard to tell whats what sometimes. As in people hating on the squidro deal.....
ultra long line purist BS......is that anything like the ultra fat short line BS????
Have you ever read anything about skagit guys hating on long liners?
hmmmm yep, scotty o saying long lines are for fags and scotty H saying somthing else about long liners in his latest video
what about guys who cast skagit, scandi, and longer lines? does that make me extra-metro?
wait, am I tri-curious?
oh, I'm all confused now:clown:
Funny stuff. Would have been super cool if he would have hooked his hat on the forward cast or hit the side of that boat passing by.
The comments on YouTube are priceless. Amazing that people out there think this is a guy trying to teach a real technique.
Man... I thought Bruce is finally willing to teach us what Formula 1 Pro is doing!
All Scott Howell said about long lines was the obvious; not being able to cast in tight spaces like the one he is casting from (Scott Howell), and fatigue being a limiting factor in the amount one fishes.
I can suggest a great opportunity for that, Mark.
Member's Day at SOR, the world championship of spey casting... Wednesday, April 18. Your chance to get training from SOR's competitors... and Mr Kruk will be there instructing, along with a number of other international spey casting competitors.
