I was always told if your getting the swooshing sound on the cast, then your forcing it too much, and you need more weight/bigger float for the distance you want to cast
I'll put it on the list so that we can film just casting. Struggling with weather, conditions and time at the moment but with the garden sorted just need some good weather. Finding a 'quiet' venue isn't proving easy either. I'm hoping to do at least 7 videos on stillwater waggler fishing before the rivers reopen.would be good at least few real examples in your excellent video series, waggler casting
Billy Makin?I don't understand all the theory, but watching one of the greats fish was amazing. Considering that "Film" must be over 30 years old, and his tackle of the same vintage he made it look so easy. I wonder what size those carp are now, if they are still around, did they spawn, and do their offspring still exist in the same stretch. I can't remember the last time I took a rod to a canal. Does anybody know which canal and where?
Got a feeling he was on the Oxford Canal. I can remember fishing the Thames at Wolvercote by the Toll Bridge, after chub, and catching 26 little carp in a morning and subsequently discovering that Thames Water had put two dustbins of these 4-6oz fish in the day before. Cue the locals descending on the spot and fishing out as many as possible and transferring them to the Oxford Canal at Wolvercote. This was in the early 80s.Yes, the Golden Arm himself. I'm sure he could catch fish out of an empty jam jar.
