Traditional longline speycasting techniques have evolved greatly over the last decade. Despite the dominance of shorter Skagit and Scandanavian shooting heads, longline speycasting methods have continued to evolve under the radar of today's mainstream instructional videos and literature. With continuing advances in rods, lines and techniques mid to long bellied casting is easier than ever.
This is a very thorough discussion on long liens and casting techniques. Throughout the day some of the information you will see and hear includes:
latest advances in mid to long bellied lines; how to custom cut your lines to suit your rod; using long line techniques with shorter, lighter rods; efficient casting techniques for long lines; highlights of changes in technique emphasising cleaner anchors, ascending loop deliveries, greater distances, powerful turnover; using long lines with polyleaders and heavy flies; casting with your non-dominant hand on top.
