    @Grayfisher1 good point you can see from the triangular shape of his loops that the lower section of his line is colliding with the upper section, like throwing a Frisbee straight up this type of cast will lose distance. That being said his cast is very good.

    What a great club. I joined when visiting my brother in Oakland. It’s nice to know places like these exist.

    Nice casting! If youd now anything about trajectory and momentum you whod understand that elevated line trajectory dont have anything to do whit casting further.NO it is the strigt line path back and forth in the air, and an ingreasing power curve combained with speed of the line and the bending/ loading/UNloading of the Rodd that gives you the distance. al the great casters have an`almost perfekt stright line trajectory..But they dont no that!!! they think it`s the timing? se your own casting

    High linespeed/lengthening the stroke/ holding the stright line in the air. thats the way! with Power Save Casting= P,S,C by Grayfisher1

    Fishing info was great and all but I was most impressed with your boots. Very nice.

    The rod Is a Leland Rod Co Prototype, it has been in developmental stages for a little over a year not and should be available soon.

  9. vibrationdumbbell says:

    what kind of rod are you using and of course from wich manufacturer is the red line???

  10. lelandfly says:

    Lines with long rear tapers, long bellies, and a average front are the best for casting long distances.

  11. lelandfly says:

    The rod is a Leland prototype and has yet to be available, soon though! It is a 5 weight with what I would best describe as an adaptive taper. The line is the Rio Gold Tournament Taper (5wt). The triangle taper is a good casting line the long taper accelerates the line as it gets thinner due to less wind resistance. The shorter back taper kicks all over the power into the belly quickly and give it the shooting head zip.

    Thank you. I am using the TT and getting used to it and it seems to be, for me any way a great shooter. It gets a little sloppy in the wind, which is user error for sure. I appreciate you getting back. Which line were you using please and the rod to? I am throwing a Wulff TT 6/7 on a Ross FW-6. I’m curious to your rod flex, it looks perfect/

  13. lelandfly says:

    I am shooting about 8 ft- 10ft. I start typically with about 60 ft (just to get my bearings). I then work my way out to about 80ft. This is really only possible with lines that have a very long belly and back taper.

  14. jsrtoofar says:

    Quick question: How much line approximately, were you feeding in between your back strokes? It looked like like you were letting about 2 or 3 decent loops out. Thinking you started with 40′ and finished with like 70 before launching it? Just curious. Thanks for the tips.
