Re: Cast 1/64 with Ald15

Physically casting the bait and practical casting is different. It's a feat to cast a bait that small regardless. Casting that weight in a stream with accuracy is a different story. I got a 16 Aldebaran BFS with the Avail 16ALD15R spool. That is the bee's knees. Noticeably casts better than the KTF...

Re: Cast 1/64 with Ald15

I have a question regarding your rod, is the guide missing on purpose? If that is a modification, does that have something to do with being able to cast light weights? Rod is Murai Super Under Zero 1602 (0.3-2.5g)...This rod already able to cast under 1/32...I just change handle and reel seat,and f...

Re: Trout casting rod.

After being absent from the BFS scene for a little bit, and going down a different rabbit hole. Fiberglass fly rods. I am looking for opinions on some shorter trout rods that you can get from Chris at finesse fishing. I am wondering if any of you are fishing the Daiwa Pureliust 52ulB, or any of the...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Anyone else have a slight 'tick' with these spools? Its very slight, but annoys me to the point that Im gong another direction for bfs. :doh: Yes, I do. I mainly use the DIY as backup spools when I fish from shore. That's it! :lol: I'm 100% agreed that's a best place for using this staff! :mrgreen:

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

I can't wait to see the video! I'm going to be exploring my casting abilities this spring too. With a rod that light, you might as well be using an al dente piece of spaghetti! Is it a solid blank or hollow? Yea! Spagetti is no problem too :lol: It's solid tip,pretty long,-16",and soft enough

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Yea,and some flyes (streamers,f ex)is match heavier,-1/16,1/8... And jighead of 1/32-1/64 with small plastic is very effective for the small non-predarors fish(crucian carp,or gold fish, for example) .It's really hard to catch them,they're smart and so gentle baiting. In Japan and England crucian fi...

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Sure,it's some requirements to have a bit spase,not so windy,not a 100 feet cast :lol: ...but! It's possible.
I'm not a lier or troll,in my age mostly people think before talk. ;)
During this season,I'll make a video for you,guys.(if i'm still alive :) )
