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.

Brady, I don't think anyone is questioning Bruce's motivation for posting, we all know it was for fun...and it was funny...especially the head bobs!

All comments are directed to the technique in question not the poster.
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.

Thanks,

James.

I did not make the video nor did I post it on Youtube, all I did was find it on youtube. Whats wrong with having a sense of humour?
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.....

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.

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.

Man... I thought Bruce is finally willing to teach us what Formula 1 Pro is doing!
Dang...
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.
