Forum casting tuition

Post by Weaver on Tue Sep 29, 2009 12:52 pm

So with the cod season upon us I gues thoughts move to getting some distance. Well the cod aren't always at 200yds, but a smooth efficient casting style will certainly be a good start.

So Colin has generously offered his time to our members again. He will be in the cogden area for a week from the 10th to the 17 October. He has suggested a good date for a group session would be Friday 16th. I guess we will be looking at an early evening session. I personally can't make this date as its my sons birthday but may try and meet up with colin during the week.

So if anyone wants some help with casting register your interest here. If Colin could confirm the date and times that would be great.

Sounds like a cracking idea, think I need more technique rather than brute force. Very Happy

Okay guys Friday the 16th is fine I will liase with richard about time and plaice!! and weather.

As you know I dont charge for my tution however the England Junior fishing squad is in need of funds, there has already been a match fished in the bournemouth area to raise funds for our junior anglers.

Can I suggest that a small donation into their funds would help them. This can be collected by sally on the day(and god forbid anybody who refuses!!!!) and i will make sure DBY gets it.

Rather than put my mobile number on line anybody fishing chesil the week
of the 10th and wants to make contact then richard has my number.

Thanks Colin, sounds like a plan. Again, I'd strongly recommend anyone who can make it taking colin up on this offer. The improvement you get for a few minutes help is amazing.

Not able to make 16th as we are up on the 10th to 13th Oct so will meet up with Colin then. We are going to the Weymouth casting club tournament on the 11th Oct hoping the wind will be up to improve on last months 237yd pb. If anybody wants to go and have a look at some of the best casters in the country or have a go yourself. Its usualy in a field near the Castle. Have a good day on the 16th.

HI JFBEE. ITS 6.00 FOR THE DAY WHICH IS FOR INSURANCE AND FIELD HIRE 5.00 FOR MEMBERS.

GIVE IT A GO ALL THE GUYS ARE VERY HELPFULL AND ITS NOT JUST FOR THOSE WHO CAN CAST BIG DISTANCES YOUR CAPABILITY DOESNOT MATTER.

YOU WOULD BE SUPPRISED JUST HOW FAR 100M IS LET ALONE 300 AS MOST ANGLERS EXAGERATE THEIR DISTANCES UNTIL THEY CAST ON THE FIELD.

That sounds very enticing just to see how far I really can cast. Also someone might be able to persuade me to have a go with the reel down the butt. A stupid question but do we have to supply our own leads?

Hi Kep

Have a go and see what you can do, however if you have a go down the butt(and it would help you gain a few more yards) make sure that you use a rod shorter than 14ft if you are going to pendulum, otg is better with a longer rod but most casters would struggle to pendulum with any rod longer than 14ft.

Kep, your do have to supply your own leads (steel eyed not brass) also there are regulations as to the dia of shockleader for use with certain weights e.g .75 for 150 & 175. No tapered leaders, swivels, the connection between lead and leader is by enclosed steel clip (not Gemini type link clip), but all the rules etc and there arn't many will be explained.

Give it a go its great fun (banter is brilliant).

But be warned it does become very addictive. affraid

I will try with the reel down on my current 16' rods as I am use to pedulum casting with them but will also try with my 13' rods to see if there is a difference in distance.

Might give it a go at Weymouth. What time?

Kep casting usualy starts about 9.30 am to about 5/6pm depending on weather etc.

you should find reel dowm much better but thats personal pref some get on with it others hate it. try it 6 to 12" up the but to start with until you find the best position for you.

Can anyone go along and watch? Reckon I might pop along for an hour or 2 to see how it's done - Kep - If you're going, let me know and maybe I could come and have a look at your Daiwa TDSS rods?

Which castle are we talking about - Portland? Or are we talking Nothe Fort?
