Looks like great fun was had by one and all, but what's that furry looking thing that's being cast near the end of the video clip - it looks like a ferret !?!  lots of laughs

No it's not a ferret it's a length of fluffy yarn that substitutes for the fly line on Ben's wee indoor casing rod. It is not easy to cast with, believe me very happy

Many thanks to Mike for arranging the hire of the Hall and to Peter and Kevin for arranging the obstacle course and to Ben for his patience with me. I came home with a list of things to work on. I also made the mistake of trying a few different rods and I rather liked one or two. Hmmm cheeky cool dude

Cheers

Clark,

sorry to hear about your rod. sad     Were you being a little over-zealous with the rod? you can tell me.

I can't really say that I get stuck on bottom very much but if I ever to I'd be inclined to lose the rod, grab the line and 'straight line' pull against the stuck fly (possibly from a couple of angles) this will either release the fly or snap the leader.

If the fly does release then I'd check the gape and point.

Should have went to 'the outcasts' event!

Take it easy

I look forward to it, you never know it might be repairable (or does the rod have a guarantee?)

Anyway it looks like it was fun very happy Pity i missed it sad

Hi guys!

Looks like you guys are having a blast! I wish I could join in. We have organised casting practise indoors for three years now. Winter here is a nightmare so the weekly sessions quick became a substitute for fishing during winter. It's allmost all there, the best of friends, tackle discussions, great coffee and the occational snags.  very happy

Best regards

Hi Stefan
Welcome to the forum thumbs up
Your indoors looks much longer than our indoors, I'm sure I've seen a video worthy

I'm hoping we can get out on the grass again soon!
Best wishes
Mike
