    Bumcast!
    What line do you use, from backing, to the fly? Name, weight, meters and so on… It looks special

    @Bumcast Thanks for the reply :). That’s right, I saw you didn’t do a clear distinction between the stop and the wiggle in the film. It was kind of smooth. But whatmade me think it is actually a mend, is that on the step by step explanation it says “Stop the rod” and then “Wiggle”. However, I feel that the name isn’t as important as the fact, that the wiggle is a great presentation cast, and what’s more, it is easy to execute, unlike the curves, which I still can’t perform!
    Cheers from France!

    @Viktor4386 You make a very good point! – and I suppose it could be termed as both. Many do begin those wiggles before the rod effectively stops – some after. To make a really effective ‘wiggle cast/mend’ is all tends to happen simultaneously without clear distinction. But that’s just me, others may have differing opinions. Interested to hear them.
    Cheers!

    Hi,
    There’s something I don’t get : why is the “wiggle cast” considered as a cast rather than as a mend ? As in the “wiggle cast” we reposition the line after the rod stops, shouldn’t we call it the “wiggle mend”? (Just like the reach mend instead of the reach cast) Thank you in advance for your explanation !

    I have caught a lot of browns and never found a mouse in any fish. But it’s Canada not New Zealand

  6. Dylan1994Hunter says:

    Still I have caught a lot of browns and never seen a mouse in any fish I have caught. But its Canada not New Zealand.

  7. Bumcast says:

    Hey thanks. When they get going those brownies certainly munch a lot of mice!

  8. Dylan1994Hunter says:

    I watched your once in a blue moon vid, witch is put together perfectly, I could not get over the casting they just kept on going and going, the other thing that amazed me was how many mice that brown had in it. That just makes me wanna go there.

  9. Dylan1994Hunter says:

    @Bumcast Wow I need that line now. I have some like it but it is sinking line. Well I know what I am buying next.

  10. Viktor4386 says:

    @Bumcast Thank you for the quick reply! Then I’ll go for the SA Mastery trout and bass line, I must admit this sounds more logical :).Then what do you use the SA Distance for? Just for for flycasting courses? Or maybe to get distance easily? I was thinking about the distance line, because my favourite trout river is quite large, something around 50-60 meters. It often is a windy place, so I thought it’d help getting distance in such conditions, besides improving my casting technique…

  11. Bumcast says:

    @Viktor4386 No I wouldn’t recommend the Expert Distance for trout or sass, I’d recommend a trout or bass line…
    S.A make some specific lines for throwing large bass bugs, and delicate tapers for spring creeks and trout – The Mastery series is excellent

  12. Viktor4386 says:

    @Bumcast I feel i need your help again, would you recommend this Scientific Anglers Distance Fly line for fishing trouts and bass? What is your opinion about the Scientific Anglers flylines, especially the Mastery series?
    Thank you for your Answer!

  13. Bumcast says:

    @SaskFlyFisher the Line is a Scientific Anglers Expert Distance / Instructors line

  14. SaskFlyFisher says:

    What kind of line is that… the red looks as stunning as the casts;)

  15. matttheswede says:

    @Bumcast Thank you! it looks like magic in the hands of a pro caster like yourself. brilliant watching.

  16. Bumcast says:

    @Polky Cheers -glad you liked it

  17. Polky says:

    Filming is awesome! Really good casting and editing as well!

  18. Bumcast says:

    @matttheswede Of course! – the Rod is a Sage Vantage – Medium/fast action

  19. matttheswede says:

    Can i ask what type of action you have got on that rod?
    Or what rod it is even?

  20. Bumcast says:

    @Viktor4386 Gr8!

  21. Viktor4386 says:

    @Bumcast Then I guarantee that I’ll buy the second part the day of it’s release 🙂

  22. Bumcast says:

    @Viktor4386 Great to hear, yes, we’re planning more. We should get another underway in a couple of months.

  23. Viktor4386 says:

    @Bumcast Thank you!
    I’d like to add that your DVD really helps learning flycasting!
    Are you planning to film a second volume of it?

  24. Bumcast says:

    @Viktor4386 I’d call it an aerial Snap – T, It’s the same set of moves. In this case you don’t let the full line settle after the snap (then on to form a D-Loop) You simply move the rod back in concert with the line to form the D-Loop without pausing. You really miss out a step by making the move continuous from snap to D-loop then out again.

    Great video, great DVD and Great Casts!
    What is the name of the cast in 0:49 ?
