    2 of us looking for casting tuition please.
    interested in learning pendulum.
    south west, close to minehead.
    work for ourselves, so as flexible as you need us to be, and far more flexibile than my newbie rod! :)

    Hi, I have just started sea fishing and looking for some casting tuition.

    I am a course angler and OK up to approximately 100m with a 12ft 2 3/4lb rod with a 1 1/2 oz weight but struggle with a sea rod.

    Any help would be appreciated

    I live in Lincoln

    Hi. I live in Poole. I have a reasonable pendulum style but I have some bad timing and position habits I can't seem to break. Are there any instructors local to me that can help me out.
    Cheers.
    Pete.

    Fundamentals of good fly casting.

    Single Spey cast
    Single Spey cast
    You don't have to be good at fly casting to catch fish but very few bad casters catch many fish and good fly casting is part of the satisfaction and enjoyment of fly fishing. Fly casting is easy if you satisfy the physics related to the method being attempted and fortunately the physics is simplified by observing a few basic rules.

    Start with the line straight or organised. Just as it is impossible to pull a car with a slack tow rope it is impossible to move a fly with a slack line. If the line is not straight movement is wasted to straighten it and your effort is not only wasted, you have now got the rod in a bad place to start. Always start tight and this of course applies whether your line is on the water, in the air or formed into a roll casting D loop. If the fly moves when the rod tip moves a little the line is sufficiently organised.

    Every casting stroke is a smooth acceleration followed by a stop. In this context acceleration can be interpreted as meaning that the rod pulls all the line, all the time throughout the cast. The "cast" completes when the rod stops. The acceleration bends the rod and loads it as a spring. Whilst it is accelerating the bend increases, when it stops the rod recovers and straightens, it is the stop that transfers the stored (potential) energy from the spring (rod) to the line adding it to the (kinetic) energy already possessed by the line and thereby makes the cast. That is why descriptions "like flicking paint off a brush" are applicable to casting. Most people understand that action and can replicate it. The better the "stop" the better it goes because the energy transfer is more efficient if the rod is stopped abruptly.
    The line always follows the rod tip and when the rod stops the line projects in the direction that the rod tip was going in when the stop was made. This is perhaps the least understood rule but it is absolutely fundamental to the construction of every casting technique. Every direction that the line takes was produced by movement the rod tip. This is so obvious and equally obviously, often forgotten! If you want your line to go in a straight line - make the rod tip move in a straight line, the direction of the line is the same as the direction of the rod tip and the same thing goes for circles or parts of circles, eclipses or any other shape that can support continuous motion for the duration of a casting stroke.

    Hi does anyone know of a good casting instructor in the Bristol/Newport Cardiff area? Seen one site called total angler that advertises casting tuition, but no blog activity since 2014.

    Hello all

    Just joined the forum.
    I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction for some casting tuition in the south east, ideally East Sussex.
